Halloween Drink Recipes


meeeowwwww! It’s that time of year again friends, and as you might have guessed, I’m dressing as a fireman.

Halloween is right around the corner so it’s time to turn our attention from sweet summer-y drinks to concoctions that are more in touch with the dark side. I’m talking about drinks inspired by ghosts, goblins and creepy supernatural events. These drinks may have some bloodcurdling names, but trust me… the taste really good.

I’ll try and update this page from now until Halloween with some clever drink recipes to both scare an intoxicate your Halloween party guests this year. Bookmark this page for an in-progress list of all our Halloween cocktails. Here are a few to get you started:

Flaming Pumpkin Pie

Witches Brew

Here’s a drink I whipped up for some friends this week. It had some great reviews:

Pumpkin Pie Martini
Ingredients

12 oz of your favorite vodka
1/3 can of pumpkin pie filling
1 cinnamon stick
3 cloves
5 drops of vanilla
whipped cream

Directions
Mix together the vodka, pumpkin pie filling, vanilla, and cloves in a large bowl or bottle (something you can seal later). The pumpkin pie filling will be quite thick, so ensure you give it a thorough mixing. Add in cinnamon stick, seal it up, and leave it for at least 24 hours in the refridgerator.

When you’re ready, open up the mixture and filter out the pumpkin infused vodka. strain the vodka to a martini glass and top with whipped cream. For extra credit, crush up some ginger snaps and use as rimmer on the glass, or top with a fun Halloween cookie from your mom.

Inventing New Drinks – The Twisted Stache

Inventing New Drinks – The Twisted Stache


Here in Toronto summers are short, way too short, so I try to ensure no day or night passes me by. On a warm wednesday, thursday, friday, or saturday its an opportunity, if not an obligation to join your buddies on a rooftop where you can sip or pound drink after drink of your favorite summer beverage. Now after you hang out with the same dudes/chicks night after night for hours at a time, staring at each others faces, it is often appropriate to bring some drinking games into play to keep things interesting. You can stick with the old faithfuls, but whats more fun then inventing your own game? Now I’ve made up my share of games, but only a few have survived a night’s blur, and those include ‘Bad Word Scrabble’, ‘BAM’ and the one I’m about to talk about, ‘Invent A Drink’.

I’m sure many of you have played this game, and probably given it a much better title then I have however for those of you that have not please read on. That night, our objective was to have everyone invent a drink by a set time, for us it was 11:00. At that time, everyone divulges the name / ingredient of their potential creation. The group then casts their vote for their favorite and orders it from the bar, the inventor of course gets their drink paid for. I certainly can’t remember what the losing drinks were (including the one I made up) but the winner is a favorite we get pretty much every time we head to the bar:

— THE TWISTED STACHE —

Twisted Stache

 

Here is how it’s made:

  • 1/2 Shot of Vodka
  • 1/2 Shot of Southern Comfort
  • Half Glass of Red Bull
  •  

    Directions: Pour half a shot of vodka into a shot glass and top it up with Southern Comfort. Drop the shot glass into a half glass of red bull and slam it back.

    Now I know its not the most complex drink in the world but its the best our drunken conglomerate could come up with. Irregardless, it’s damn good and I recommend ordering it to jump start your night. Make sure you reference by the name ‘Twisted Stache’ at your local bar and help get one of our favorite drinks known worldwide.
