Creepy cocktails

Since we covered food and nonalcoholic punches last time, I thought it would be a good idea to devote today's entry to "hard" drinks not suitable for minors.

Getting back to Lesley Pratt Bannatyne's A Halloween How-To: Costumes, Parties, Decorations, and Destinations from yesterday's entry:

Spiked Halloween Punch and Blood-Red Cocktails
Spicy Bloody Mary and Halloween Schnapps

The Cocktails of the Ritz Paris by Colin Peter Field offers a pumpkin-flavored cocktail which goes by several spooky names.

Knack Bartending Basics: More Than 400 Classic and Contemporary Cocktails by Cheryl Charming and Susan Bourgoin contains the following drink recipes:

Devil's Blood and Rotten Pumpkin
Ghost Aura and Berry Scary-tini

Moving on to Wikibooks (some scrolling may be required):

Ectoplasm (Two variations)

Hangman's Blood

Invisible Man


There's also a separate entry on the Zombie that has a more detailed history of the drink, along with some alternate Zombie recipes.

Please drink responsibly!
