Spooky Drink Concoctions To Surprise Guests At Your Halloween Party
One of the most enjoyable activities of the Halloween season is hosting a get-together with friends and family. Everyone is having fun! Dressing up, theming costumes and acting in character are those expected delights only Halloween brings about. Mixing up a potion might just be the missing ingredient needed at your next spooky festivity. Who doesn’t love a themed cocktail? These three bottles from Cask Cartel will be downright crowd-pleasers to share with friends this season.
Empress 1908 Indigo Gin
Infused with tinted butterfly pea blossom, Empress 1908 Indigo Gin is an all-natural, color-changing gin. Adding citrus or tonic to this vivid indigo blue gin will change it to a soft pink color, making the bottle double as a Halloween trick to share at your party. To keep with the Autumn-themed nature of things, an Apple and Gin cocktail is an ideal treat to make and showing off the unique color-changing flare to guests will make it even more fun.
- 3 cups Empress 1908 Indigo Gin
- 3 cups of fresh apple cider (or hard apple cider if you really want a kick)
- ¾ cup lime juice
- 1 ½ cups Honey Simple Syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon (to taste)
- Honey Simple Syrup:
- ¾ cup honey
- ¾ cup HOT water
- optional garnishes: 6 thyme sprigs, 3 apples – cut into matchsticks
Simply combine the ingredients over ice and stir. Making the honey simple syrup is easy, just mix the honey and hot water into a lidded jar, screw tightly and shake until the honey dissolves. For the garnish, place thyme sprigs and sliced apples into the cocktail.
