Midweek Happy Hours | Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Happy Halloween!

I am one of those people who will wait until the very last moment when it comes to festivals! Be it gifting, decor or even food and drinks! If you are as lazy as me, this post it just for you!

Sharing two of my favourite coloured cocktails which go with the season! The two Halloween cocktail recipes are easy to make and are vividly going to match the spooky theme!

For me, Halloween has always been the time to enjoy the lighter and sweeter cocktails! Culturally, India doesn’t celebrate Halloween. However, we did have pub crawls on the 31st of October but that is it! Now, the kids have started doing the treat and treating and it’s just fun!

I am sharing two cocktails today – they are sweet and made with 3 ingredients! Well, isn’t that what I do? Mix simple cocktails, right in your kitchen! These are the most basic of the cocktails but they are as tipsy as they can get!

Drink responsibly. Don’t mix drinking with driving.

Easy Halloween Cocktails: Dracula’s Blood

This is a very easy Halloween cocktail recipe for the evening. Some juice, lemon and rum – that is all you need!

Adding lemon to your sweet drinks brings a perfect balance and of course, who doesn’t enjoy that subtle citrus flavour?

I am using black decorating sugar to give a creepy look to my glass.

Dracula’s Blood


For Cocktail:

  • 60mL white rum

  • 15mL freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 120mL cranberry juice

For rimming the glass:

  • Simple Syrup

  • Decorating Sugar Black

  • Office Tape


  1. Use the office tape to make the desired shape on your glass.

  2. Use the simple syrup to cover the area where you want your decorating sugar to stick.

  3. Pat over the decorating sugar, till the area, is covered well.

  4. Remove the tape and wipe clean your glass.

  5. Mix the juices and the rum

  6. Stir and enjoy!


  1. Use chocolate sprinkles if you don't have black sugar you can also add a drop of black food color to your regular sugar crystalYou can also add some fizz by adding sparkling water to the cocktail.

Easy Halloween Cocktails: Witches Brew

Now, this one is pretty easy for a cocktail! It looks fancy because of its colour. This easy Halloween cocktail recipe just needs you to have a good dry gin at home and you are good to go!

While I am using Empress Gin for its vibrant color, you can either use purple food colour or you can brew some butterfly pea blossoms(tea or just the flowers) and use the brewed concoction in your cocktail.
