Just because you don't go trick-or-treating on Halloween, doesn't mean you can't enjoy a tasty treat. Halloween is all about spooky parties, ghastly costumes and murderous martinis. If you're throwing a Monster Mash at your place this year, take our advice with these ghostly concoctions to get your party started.

Brain Hemorrhage

This shot looks like a demon lives in your glass. No matter how crazy it looks, it's a great conversation starter with the hottie in the Princess Leia Slave girl outfit.

.5 to .75 Peach Schnapps

1 tsp Grenadine

1-2 Tbsp Bailey's Irish Cream




Instructions:

  1. Fill a Personalized Shot Glass with Peach Schnapps.
  2. In a Tbsp. place a tsp. of Grenadine, and fill the rest with Irish Cream.
  3. Slowly float the Grenadine/Irish Cream on the top of the shot. The cream should fall without separating.
  4. Fill the rest of the shot with Irish cream to taste.

Crystal Head Vodka

Dan-and-vodka-save-for-web.jpgOK. We know it's not a mixed drink, but this new vodka distilled by Dan Akyroyd is perfect for Halloween. As the heart of the Ghostbusters, Dan Aykroyd is a guru for all things paranormal and unbelievable, and claims he spent the last 13 years researching the legends of the crystal skulls. Based on Native American beliefs, these skulls represent mystical properties and represent a life-affirming symbology.

Even if you don't believe in any of that crap, you can still enjoy a Ghostbuster brewed, sweet grain, premium vodka out of a freakin' skull!
