Halloween Spirits

Are you ready to host a bunch of ghouls and goblins this Halloween? In order to get them into the Halloween spirit, serve them up one of these "spirits":
Mystic Mimosas
Orange juice
Black vodka
Black olives
Cream Cheese
Fill a champagne flute 2/3 of the way up with Orange Juice (It may be even creepier if you use Blood Orange Juice because it is a darker red). Slowly tip the glass and pour in a shot of vodka down the side of the glass, so that the two don't mix too much. Next, stuff black olives with a little cream cheese to make the eyes, and use pieces of other olives for the pupils. Put two on a toothpick and serve this mystic drink to your guests. (Thanks to Stem Parties for this great recipe!)

Eyeball Highball
Vodka or Gin
Ice Cube Tray

Before your party, slice olives into slivers, and add to the ends of each ice cube in the tray. Fill with water and freeze. When your guests arrive, offer them a drink on the rocks. Instead, they will have a drink that they can't keep their "eyes" off!

Bloody Marys
Bloody Mary Mix or V8
Horseradish sauce

Fill up 3/4 of a glass with Bloody Mary mix or V8 juice over ice. Add one shot of vodka, and 1/2 tsp of horseradish sauce (more if you like a good kick). Stir well. Take a lime wedge and squeeze a bit of the juice into the drink, and serve this Vampire juice with a celery stick.

Pina Ghoulada
1 Can Frozen Pina Colada Mix
1/3-1/2 Can of rum (using frozen drink mix can for measure)
3 Tbsp Corn Syrup
1/4 tsp Red Food Coloring

In a shallow bowl, combine the corn syrup and food coloring, and mix gently with a toothpick. Carefully set a glass rim into the mixture, and turn as you remove the glass and set upright. The corn syrup will drip in a few places and will set in a few minutes. While these rest, prepare the pina coladas per the instructions on the can in a blender. Then pour them into the glasses and serve this ghoulish delight! (Thanks to Martha Stewart for these recipes)
