I have a confession to make: I don’t really like Halloween. I know, I know–a blogger who doesn’t like Halloween?!? I struggled through my college years pretending to care/dressing up for parties, but it never truly seemed worth it. I love a good costume, and I love dressing up, but I’ve never truly loved Halloween after I became too old to trick or treat.

If you’re like me and are spending the night at home handing out candy, these drinks are for you! And if you’re the complete opposite of me and are hosting an extravagant themed party, these drinks are also for you!

Note: All three of these drinks call for black vodka. If you can’t find any, it’s easy to make. Just add equal parts red, green, and blue food coloring drops until you’ve reached the desired darkness.


  • 1 oz black vodka
  • 2 oz cherry juice

Pour vodka and cherry juice into a shaker filled with ice; shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with berries of your choice, and serve immediately.


  • 2 oz black vodka
  • orange juice

Pour orange juice into a glass filled with ice. Pour black vodka slowly over the back of a cocktail spoon into the glass so it sits on top of the juice. Add a straw and serve.


  • blackberries
  • 1 oz black vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 oz chambord
  • club soda

Muddle blackberries in the bottom of a shaker filled with ice. Add vodka, chambord, and cranberry juice and shake vigorously. Pour into glass and top with club soda. Garnish with additional blackberries and serve.

Whether you’re obsessed with Halloween or not, you can definitely enjoy these drinks in the spirit of the holiday. Happy haunting!
