Use Iconic Candy for These 10 Halloween Drinks
Crazy for candy corn? Combine Angostura bitters and bourbon with candy corn syrup to create a festive spin off of the timeless Old Fashioned. If you’re looking to host a party filled with candy-themed desserts rather than a list of the same old cocktails, mash up your favorite chocolate and make it into a milkshake.
Whether you’re hosting a rowdy Halloween bash, a casual spooky night by a bonfire, or a kid-friendly gathering, there’s a candy-filled drink recipe for every occasion. Use iconic candy to create these 10 Halloween beverages.
Blue Raz Sour Patch Kids Cosmo
This is far from your average cosmopolitan. Featuring blueberry and Sour Patch Kids-infused vodka, this recipe creates a sour tipple that gives the ordinary cosmo a serious revamp.
Candy Corn M&M’s Milkshake
This creamy drink combines candy corn, ice cream, and M&M’s to make an irresistible sweet and salty treat. The candy corn in this recipe will be sure to keep you and your guests in the Halloween spirit. Plus, it’s kid-friendly.
Candy Corn Old Fashioned
Angostura bitters, bourbon, maraschino cherries, and candy corn syrup come together in this recipe to make a festive-spin off the timeless Old Fashioned. Be sure to prepare the candy corn syrup before you host your Halloween bash, just to give it time to settle.
Dove Hot Chocolate
This hot chocolate recipe is ideal if you’re hosting a more laid-back gathering. With the delicious mixture of Dove Milk Chocolate, whole milk, vanilla, and sugar, this is the last hot chocolate recipe you’ll ever need. Sip this if you’re planning to host a party around a bonfire on a chilly autumn night.
Jelly Bean Vodka Shots
Jelly beans can be used for far more than snacking. To create jelly bean-infused vodka shots, all you have to do is separate the beans by flavor and soak them in vodka for 24 hours. Then, strain the vodka into individual shot glasses and serve them anyway you’d like.
Peanut Butter Caramel Truffle Shake
With vanilla bean ice cream, peanut butter, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, this boozy milkshake belongs on your dessert menu. Add in an extra splash of vodka to really give it the kick it needs.
Peanut Butter Cup Martini
By drizzling chocolate syrup into a frosted martini glass, this recipe will create a delicious milkshake and martini fusion. Shake and strain the chocolate vodka, crème peanut rum, and chocolate liqueur soon after you take the glasses out of the freezer to make sure your drinks stay cold.
Reis’ Pieces Cocktail
Take full advantage of your leftover Reese’s Pieces and enjoy this cocktail long after the trick-or-treating is done. To create an extra peanut-buttery taste, crush a handful of Reese’s Pieces and use them to rim your martini glass. Originally created by Jim Reis, the name was morphed into “Reis” rather than “Reese’s.”
Not a fan of jelly beans? You can use any candy to infuse gin, but we recommend Skittles if you don’t like jelly beans. The candy is versatile and has the ability to blend into a number of recipes. Get creative and mix your favorite flavors with this gin to create the perfect Halloween cocktail for your party.
Snickers Bar Cocktail
Once you’ve bought that giant variety bag of mini chocolate candies for Halloween, you’re bound to have leftovers to spare. Separate the Snickers and use them to create a Snickers Bar cocktail you can indulge in after the trick-or-treaters have all gone home.
