Spooky Sips For Your Halloween Bash
While there are some scarily good cocktails that are ideal for a small scale Halloween dinner such as this Sweet Poison, Risen From the Grave or Black Velvet), if you're hosting a larger group or just want something you can make and forget, a punch is the perfect solution. Here are three Halloween-themed punches sure to scare your guests into a second glass.
As a side note, this scary ice hand is a must for any of the cold punches. Take a talc-free medical glove and fill it with water. Tie it shut and freeze. Once completely frozen, peel off the glove and your are left with a cold, creepy punch ice cube.
Bloody Black Currant Punch
This punch is nearly black, you guys! Easy to make and not too sweet - you have to leave room for your fair share of M&Ms and Jolly Ranchers! - it's the perfect compliment to a spooky Halloween tablescape.

Was it mummy or mommy? In either case, this mulled wine recipe is perfect if the weather is chilly on Halloween night. I like this super simple recipe from Ina Garten. Dump everything into a pot on the stove and stick a ladle and hot drink cups by the side.
Creepy Caramel Apple Punch
Looking for something a bit lighter? The directions for this cider-based punch suggest serving it cold, but I think it would be just as yummy warmed - either way the cider and rum combo will warm your belly and raise your spirits.
This can be a mocktail or cocktail. The lime gelatin mix gives it a tart punch, while cucumber-jalapeño juice kicks things up a notch. Together, the spice, lime, and ginger ale helps this mocktail resemble a margarita--without the tequila, of course. But you could easily add tequila or vodka for those who are drinking.
