With it now being nearly Halloween the summer is unfortunately fully over! The changing of the leaves is in full swing and the nights are colder and drawing in. Although a bit of a downer after the fun and sun of summer we now get the chance to spend some quality, cosy time with family and friends indoors and that means cocktails! So to get you in the mood for a great Autumn we have found three great cocktails that will keep you warm all the way to Halloween!
Orange Margarita with Black Sugar Rim
Replacing the usual Limes and Lime juice in the Margarita with Orange gives it a great Halloween colour and tastes great! Try replacing the usual salt rim with Black Sugar to really finish off the Halloween Orange Margarita! You can find black sugar easily in most Asian supermarkets.
- ◘Premium 100% Agave Silver Tequila
- ◘Cointreau/Triple Sec
- ◘Fresh Orange/Organic Orange Juice
- ◘Black Sugar
First dip the rim of the Margarita glass in a shallow saucer of water or lime juice and then push the glass firmly in to a pile of the Black sugar.
Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail Shaker with ice and strain into the glass. Then share with friends and family at your spooky celebration!
Smashin Pumpkin Cocktail
This pumpkin flavoured cocktail is perfect for a halloween party! With it's spiced flavour its an ideal accompanyment to a good bonfire or party in a haunted mansion!
- ◘Premium Dark Rum
- ◘Dram Liquer
- ◘Lemon Soda
- ◘Pumpkin Juice
- ◘Foam Candy fangs and eyeball to garnish
Mash the Rum, liquer, pumpkin juice and Lemon Soda in a collins glass and garnish the straw with the foam fangs and drop the eyeball in just prior to serving!
This bright green cucumber flavoured relative of the margarita is straight out of an episode of the Addams Family or the Munsters!! The fun of course doesn;t have to end after halloween, these would go down great at a campy horror movie night!
First dip the rim of a short glass in a shallow saucer of water or lime juice and then push the glass firmly in to a pile of the Chili Salt.
Mix together the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and the simple syrup . Muddle 1 cucumber slice in a shaker with the tequila mix, shake and strain and serve over ice!
We hope our little collection of positively Halloween Cocktail recipes will really add a special touch to your festive parties!
