Halloween Dranks For Your Spooky Party: Part 1

By Betchy Crocker

Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

Yes, it’s that magical last day of October, when you can break out your lingerie, a pair of animal ears, and some extremely high heels and claim you’re a mouse or kitty without anyone talking shit. And if they do, they’re totally just regretting their footie-pajama costume which does NOT do wonders for their already stubby legs.

If you’re hosting your own Halloween get-together complete with totally adorable finger food, candy, and alcohol, make sure you have some killer cocktails on hand. We’ll be adding to this list tomorrow, so, like, keep track.

El Diablo

- About 2 shots worth of tequila (we used Partida Reposado because it’s fancy)

- 1 1/2 tbsps lime juice

- 1 tbsp agave nectar or honey

- 1 tbsp Crème de Cassis (if you’ve never had it, it’s made from black currants and adds a lovely dark red color)

- Ginger beer (we used Reed’s)

Shake the tequila, lime juice, agave nectar, and Crème de Cassis with ice and strain into a highball glass, then top off with the ginger beer and stir. The red hue will freak everyone out and like, you’ll be popular.

If you have a bunch of beer drinkers slash hipsters at your party (why’d you invite them, honestly?), try the below cocktail to keep them from complaining:

Bad Bitch Brew

- 1/2 cup orange juice

- 2 tbsps honey syrup (make it by combining 1 cup of honey and 1 cup of water in a small pot over medium heat; stir until dissolved)

- Light-ish beer, we used Sapporo Premium but if bitches are picky you can probs find an “awesome” local, sustainable, organic microbrew

- 2-3 dashes orange bitters

In a tall cocktail glass add orange juice and honey syrup, top with the beer and orange bitters. Stir gently with bar spoon and garnish with orange slice.
