Halloween is right around the corner. Are you looking for some boozy cocktails for Halloween to make for your next Halloween party? These cocktails named after witches are just what you need!
For some people, Halloween is all about the candy. I’m much more in favor of a glass of witches brew to get me in the mood for the night.
Most of these Halloween drinks are extremely simple to make and best of all, even easier to drink. ‘Cause who has time to be a bartender on Halloween night?
I love drinks that really set the atmosphere for a Halloween Party. These witchy cocktails for Halloween are spooky and eerie and downright fun. They make use of color, texture and mood to tell us, in no uncertain terms, that Halloween is here. It’s time for some cocktails for Halloween!
The Song of the Witches (Macbeth)
Halloween is the perfect time for themed cocktails, and what is more Halloween appropriate than witch-themed cocktails?!
Witches are virtually synonymous with Halloween. Let’s take a look at the famous Song of the Witches from Macbeth to get us in the mood for these witch themed cocktails.
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.
Time for some witch inspired cocktails for Halloween
Halloween cocktail recipes have a few things in common. They make great use of color, texture and the Halloween spirit to get party goers in the holiday mood.
Often, these drinks really set the mood by using weird and wonderful Halloween cocktail garnishes.
Just like using spooky plants for Halloween decor, making eerie Halloween cocktails means thinking outside of the box.
Cocktails for Halloween are often creepy, and sometimes gimmicky – by using dry ice and other effects – but they are always fun to prepare. Best of all, to really set the mood, each of these drinks has a witch-themed name.
After all, who can resist a drink with a name like “witches blood cocktail,” “melted witch martini,” or “white witch cocktail” on Halloween night?
While we may not have the baboon’s blood, or eye of newt that are mentioned in the song above, the color and look of these drinks will make you think that witches have, indeed, brewed them up in a Halloween cauldron.
Bonus: Some of these witches drinks are kid friendly, so that the young ones can enjoy getting into the spooky mood, while others are the grown up version. All are fun, colorful and perfect for Halloween.
