Pick Your Poison – Halloween Cocktails

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday, it gives me an excuse to get a little weird and take my imagination to the limits. I especially love to prepare strange snacks and colorful cocktails for the costume party. We know you love that too, so we prepared a few cocktail recipes to impress at your party. This time we’re stepping away from the typical orange and black themed candy cocktails that no one wants to drink and serve up some of the cocktails we’ve listed below at this year’s Halloween bash.
