There’s no denying that Halloween is the greatest party night of the year. Oh, New Year’s Eve is the most obvious drinking holiday, sure, but how often do you wake up on January 1 and say to yourself, “That was worth it”? If you’re like us, though, the vast majority of your favorite party memories are from the last weekend of October.
You’ll never forget a killer Halloween costume, just like you’ll never forget a killer Halloween cocktail. So put that boring ol’ bottle of (pumpkin spice?) beer back in the fridge; it’s time to get creative and morbid with the libations. If you’re throwing a spooky bash this All Hallows' Eve, delight your guests with these concoctions that put the “boo” in booze.
