Four Killer Cocktails To Put The Boo In Your Monster Mash

OK, so you’ve decided to throw a Halloween cocktail party. Now it’s time to come up with some creepy cocktails to add to the festivities. I’ve got a few ghoulish selections. Offer them all, or make it easier on yourself and choose one as your signature Halloween party drink.

Cheers and boo!

Wolf Bite A.K.A. Zombie Bite

Banned for years, absinthe, once the favorite drink of the  bohemian crowd in Paris, is now widely available. The anise-flavored spirit still offers a bit of mystery, making it ideal for the scariest night of the year.

1 oz. Lucid absinthe

1 oz. Midori melon liqueur

1 oz. lemon-lime soda

1.5 oz. pineapple juice

Drizzle of grenadine

In a cocktail shaker add Lucid Absinthe, Midori melon liqueur, pineapple juice and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a two-ounce shot glass. Splash lemon-lime soda on top and a drizzle of grenadine.
