Ask anyone in the STYLECASTER office about their feelings on Halloween, and they’ll probably say something along the lines of, “meh—take it or leave it.” (Actually, that would be one of the more positive responses you’d hear.) We’re about last-minute costumes and getting drunk on Halloween, and that’s about it. Even drinking is usually lazy domain for us—who needs anything fancier than red wine or vodka-and-soda? But every once in awhile, it’s fun to whip up something alcoholic that’s also pretty and tastes extra-delicious—especially if you’re hosting or attending a close friend’s party.
In that spirit, we’ve gathered 10 cocktail recipes that are so Pinterest-worthy, they’ll impress the hell out of every friend you offer them to on Halloween. All it takes is setting aside a little extra time to mix up something dark, rich-looking, and full of flavorful ingredients. Think: Pumpkin, blackberries, and apples. Promise it’ll be worth it once you sip it and feel very domestically accomplished—plus, the hangover probably won’t be as bad as with beer or cheap wine.
