Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year, in our opinion. What could be better than dressing up, hanging out with friends, and enjoying fun themed cocktails?

Vampire Kiss Martini

The Vampire Kiss Martini feels a little more grown-up than some sugary themed drinks, but are still fun and festive. The options for garnishes are endless.
- 1 part raspberry liqueur
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part champagne
- Licorice, wax teeth, candy corn, etc for garnish
In a chilled martini glass, layer the liqueur, vodka, and champagne. Choose your favorite goulish garnish.

This recipe is the perfect party punch. If you're trying to "wow" a large group of guests, look no further.
- 750 ml bottle of spiced rum
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup spiced syrup (spiced cordial, without the demerara rum)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 1/2 cups sparkling water
- cinnamon sticks for garnish
In a large bowl, combine the spiced rum, orange juice, lemon juice, spiced syrup, and pumpkin puree. Once mixed well, pour through a mesh strainer to remove any large pieces of pumpkin. Chill until ready to serve. At party time, pour the mixture into a punchbowl and add sparkling water and garnish each cup with a cinnmon stick. If you're feeling super festive, you can hollow out a large pumpkin to place the bowl into. If you're feeling EXTRA super festive, dry ice in the pumpkin but underneath the bowl can give it a creepy, smoky effect. Just be sure your bowl is safe for dry ice!

- Optional: dry ice for smoky effect
Combine all of the ingredients with regular ice in a martini shaker. Mix and strain into your favorite chilled glass. If desired, add tiny chips of dry ice before serving to give a eery, smoky effect.
