As kids, Halloween parties are all about the decorations, costumes, party games and sweet treats. While all those things are still important parts of the Halloween party for us as adults, too, there's one more thing we look for at our celebration - we're talking cocktails, of course!
We get creative with our cocktail recipes no matter the occasion, but Halloween offers so much inspiration when it comes to concocting themed sips. Whether you like taking advantage of seasonal ingredients like pumpkin, prefer to use the colors of the day to dress your drink, or opt to draw on famous figures for inspiration, there's so much fun to be had with Halloween drinks.
We've rounded up ten of our favorite Halloween drinks to serve guests. Some are more playful, others a bit darker. All, however, are delicious and perfect for the holiday.
Even the simplest Halloween cocktail gets a spooky makeover when you add a skull and crossbones ice cube to the glass. We like making our ice cubes using similar ingredients we put into the drink so nothing gets watered down.

Witch's Brew isn't just a kid-friendly Halloween drink. We spike ours with a bit of vodka for a grown-up spin on the classic mocktail. Garnish with gummy worms just like you would for a child - it's still as much fun for an adult!
Sweet lovers can have their Halloween candy and cocktail all in one sip. This Almond Joy inspired drink is yummy and festive.
Cherry vodka and grenadine give this fizzy Halloween drink a sweet and tangy taste.
Though this Bat Juice drink was initially made with kids in mind, we don't see any reason you can't spike it with your favorite liquor!
A pumpkin flavored martini is a more sophisticated Halloween sip for adults to enjoy. Full of seasonal flavors, it's a favorite drink of ours to serve around the holiday!
Black cats are one of the spookier Halloween symbols we've turned to for inspiration with our Halloween drinks. This martini is dark and dangerous if you're not careful!
Hosting a Halloween brunch? Enjoy a classic Bloody Mary with a Halloween twist added to it.
Cyclops are one of the creepier monsters out there, but we're turning fear into fun with this next Halloween drink! Bright green and garnished with an olive, it's a thematic sip that makes a statement.
Blood orange is one of our favorite flavors all year round, but it's really perfect for Halloween drinks. This Blood Orange martini recipe of ours is always a hit at parties.
