4 Easy Cocktails for a Spooky Halloween

Halloween, an annual time for all things scary and creepy. If suffering through  COVID-19 social distancing measures the past year and a half wasn’t scary enough for you, here are four easy cocktails that’ll help you celebrate and potentially forget the sum of all your fears.

1. Black Magic Margaritas 

Suffice to say, the margarita is a classic drink for any occasion. This dark and sweet twist on the classic margarita is not only delicious, but is sure to leave a colourful impression on your palette (literally!)

You will need:
60ml silver/clear tequila
30ml Triple Sec
60ml Lime juice
Red, blue, and green food colouring
2g black sanding sugar/sprinkles
Lime slice(s), for garnishing

Serves 1 glass.


Start by rimming a glass with a slice of lime and dip it in the sugar/sprinkles. Shake or stir the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a glass till well combined. Add the food colouring till the desired black tone is achieved. Pour over a glass of ice and garnish with a slice of lime. 

2. Sweet Poison

Unlike the Margarita, this drink is no twist on a classic. This gorgeous cocktail, with its blue and teal overtones, looks right at home next to a jar of potion ingredients. As its name would suggest, don’t let the Sweet Poison’s  saccharine and tangy taste fool you. One too many of these and you might start seeing things that aren’t really there!

You will need:
30ml light/clear rum
60ml coconut rum
30ml Blue Curacao
Pineapple juice
Pineapple wedge(s), for garnishing

Serves 1 glass.


Pour the clear rum, coconut rum, and Blue Curacao into a cocktail shaker or tall glass. Combine the ingredients till well incorporated. Fill a cocktail glass with ice and pour the mixture over, topping up the rest with chilled pineapple juice. Finish by garnishing with a pineapple wedge.

3. Bloody Mary

A drink named after sinister folklore, this tart crimson cocktail does not, in fact, contain any blood. Rumour has it that one could summon the titular apparition by standing in front of a dimly lit mirror and chanting “Bloody Mary” thirteen times. She allegedly appears as a mangled corpse or witch, soaked in ichor. While not as scary, this cocktail is definitely delicious and favourite amongst those who fancy a more savory drink.

You will need:
45ml vodka
150ml tomato juice
Tabasco sauce
Worcestershire sauce
Sea salt
Lemon juice (optional)
1 stalk of celery, for garnishing 

Serves 1 glass


Fill a tall glass with ice. Mix the vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce in a separate glass or cocktail shaker. If you prefer a little more acidity, add the juice of half a lemon to this mixture. Stir well till well combined and strain into the glass of ice. Adjust for flavour with salt as preferred and garnish with a stalk of celery.

4. Graveyard

A drink notorious for its incredible strength and spirit-forwardedness, the Graveyard is a veritable glass of death. Comprising 7 different spirits and 2 beers, this jet-black cocktail has one goal - to put you six feet under.

You will need:
15ml vodka
15ml gin
15ml tequila
15ml bourbon whisky
15ml Scotch whisky
15ml triple sec
15ml Barcardi 151
Beer (lager)

Serves 1 glass


Fill a glass half full with ice and add all the spirits. Stir and mix well to incorporate, and top up the remaining with equal parts beer and stout till the glass is full. 

*Author’s note: We recommend a non-alcoholic chaser to wash down this cocktail.
