Halloween Cocktails

Updated: Jan 15

I love creating seasonal cocktails and Halloween can not go amiss! Using fresh ingredients inspired by Autumn and this spooky season. From warm pumpkin cinnamon flavours to smoky and dark cocktails. Bringing unique tastes in a glass.


Here are my 3 signature cocktails for Halloween 2021:



The Old Pumpkin

An Autumnal twist on this classic cocktail. Perfectly balanced flavours combining the sweetness of my homemade Pumpkin Jam with a touch of spice, topped with burnt cinnamon. This is truly Autumn in a beverage!


Ingredients:

  • Bourbon Whiskey

  • Homemade Pumpkin Spiced Jam*

  • Chocolate Bitters

  • Touch of Campari

  • Smoked Cinnamon Stick

Blackberry Boo

I created this cocktail with a dark look in mind and what better fresh ingredients to use than blackberry?! Playing with flavours and ingredients to create a unique taste and this was the result. A refreshing, fruity and spiced cocktail.


Ingredients:

  • Rum

  • Blackberries

  • Basil

  • Falernum Syrup

  • Lime

  • Ginger Beer



The Bloody Margarita

I actually had the main ingredient as Blood Orange in mind for this cocktail but living on an island it was impossible to access! So I came up with the closest alternative - Grapefruit. To add more of a Halloween touch to this cocktail I've added a mysterious touch of black salt on the rim. Oh and Tequila had to be on the menu (Feliz día de los muertos)!


Ingredients:

  • Tequila

  • Cointreau

  • Campari

  • Fresh Grapefruit

  • Fresh Lime Juice

  • Touch of Agave Syrup

  • Himalayan Black Salt on the rim
