Drink Recipes: Ghoulish, Halloween Inspired Sips From SKYY Vodka, Courvoisier, Maker’s Mark & More

Graveyard Gruel

Oh Halloween, how I used to love rocking a witch costume nearly eight years in a row, and the drowning sensation that at times occurred while bobbing for apples at Halloween parties jam-packed with the 12-and-under crowd. Glad those days are over. Let’s be real here folks, aside from the seemingly unlimited candy, Halloween is a lot more enjoyable as an adult. And no, I’m not referring to the skimpy costumes (where’s your creativity people!) or sketchy (although somewhat enjoyable) warehouse parties, I’m talking about the cocktails! Brands tend to go all out once fall rolls around, but they really up the creativity for Halloween. Hence the reason why I feel like this blog post has 88,000 drink recipes. They all looked so creative and tasty, so I had to share.

I’m not sure what my plans are this Halloween. They always tend to differ tremendously from year to year, but if I get to make at least two of the cocktails below, I’ll be quite content.

Cheers to a safe, enjoyable, and of course Lushworthy Halloween!
