Womanista Food+Drink: Party-Perfect Halloween Cocktails

It’s almost Halloween! Who’s ready for a cocktail? For those of you hosting Halloween soirees this weekend (ps – fun! Tweet me pics of your costume @WomanistaStyle) it’s important to serve a great cocktail that will get your party started off right. (I mean, how can your bestie confidently wear her “Sexy Cop” costume without imbibing in a cold bev first?? Just kidding. Sort of.)

Here are a few delish, creative cocktails that your ghoulish guests are sure to enjoy!

SVEDKA After Dark

1 Part SVEDKA Clementine

1/2 part Sour Cherry Schnapps

1 Part Mango Juice

1/2 Part Orange Juice

Splash of Lime Juice

Candy Corn (for garnish)

Directions: Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake gently, and strain into a glass. Garnish with candy corn.


The Red Head

1 1/2 oz. of Crystal Head Vodka

1/2 oz of PAMA Liqueur

Pomegranate slice

Directions: Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add Crystal Head Vodka and Pama.  

Shake well and strain into martini glass. Garnish with a slice of pomegranate


Pumpkin Pie Frappe

2 oz. Four Roses Bourbon

4 tsp. pumpkin puree (canned) **see note below

2 tsp. Sugar in the Raw (or Turbinado or Demerara)

pinch ground cinnamon

pinch ground allspice

3 oz. half-and-half (use fat free for a ‘skinny’ version)

1 cup vanilla ice cream (slightly softened) (use fat free for a ‘skinny’ version)

Directions: Combine all of the above ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Serve in nicely chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg
