5 Cocktail Potions to Spice Up Any Halloween Party

October 30, 2014

Every Halloween party needs a themed cocktail to match.  If you are tending to a large crowd, spiked punches, like the witches brew, are a great idea because you do not need a bartender to serve drinks up individually.  If beer is more your thing, select your favorite seasonal pumpkin brew with a shot of spiced rum instead.  These festive cocktails are guaranteed to spice up any Halloween bash.
