Halloween Candy Corn Jell-O® Shots
An adult way to enjoy classic Halloween candy corn. Recipe creator Leslie says, "This version goes for a triple shot, so shoot responsibly."
While this recipe is nonalcoholic, many users add a little booze to make it party-ready. RIZZOJOJO says, "So easy. I add South Comfort! Was a huge hit at the party!"
Sarah's Frozen Pumpkin Spice Cocktail
Keep your blender handy for this delightfully creamy and rich cocktail. It has a double hit of fall flavor from the pumpkin spice liqueur and pumpkin purée.
"This is excellent! I served this at a Halloween party tonight and everyone kept telling me how much they loved it," says reviewer amydoll. "Not too sweet, not too much alcohol, just right! I will definitely make this again."
Mater's Adult Butterbeer
Recreate this favorite from the Harry Potter series, but with a boozy twist. Spiced rum and butterscotch schnapps combine for a burst of sweet flavor.
"I serve it every year at my annual Halloween party," says recipe creator Marie Gould Stonge. "For a fun Halloween effect, add glow in the dark fangs, plastic eyeballs or little skulls to the punch."
Poison Apple Martini
You'll have no problem sipping this "poisoned" martini made with cranberry-apple juice, vodka, and pomegranate juice. Serve it up with a slice of apple and you're set for a spooky evening.
Black Halloween Punch
"I added vodka to this for my "adult" party and I had to keep re-filling it!! Also, add different food coloring to the gloves to make it even spookier! We used extra blue, red, and green. Then we hung the gloves in our freezer with clothes pins so it froze the whole hand," says reviewer krista.
Fall Apple Pumpkin Shandy
It doesn't get much easier than this two-ingredient beverage. Spicy apple cider and smooth pumpkin ale combine into one irresistible drink. "It was so good. I used the Saranac Pumpkin Ale and it was delicious," says waterbabyaislynn.
This punch has a bold and fruity flavor with notes of peach and orange throughout. Recipe creator smerki suggests, "Garnish with orange, lime, and lemon wheels."
