Halloween Cocktails

Halloween is almost here! I plan on taking it easy with a glorious bath and a horror movie marathon but this post is for all you party people out there, planning on throwing the spookiest gathering of the year.

Spooky Harry Potter Halloween Cocktails - Bits & Spaces

I have created two classy Harry Potter cocktails that I will share with you today. Now wether you are throwing a party with a HP theme or not these two cocktails are the perfect spooky-looking duo. Just change up the names and they can fit into any theme you desire. How about Werewolf Soul and Full Moon or maybe Raven Feathers and Graveyard Fog? The possibilities are endless but I think I will stick to my beloved Harry Potter.

The Death Eater

Despite it’s grim name and appearance this  is a wonderful, fruity cocktail with a prominent raspberry flavor. The lime gives it just the right amount of acidity so be warned, it’s dangerously easy to drink.

  • 30 ml Vodka
  • 20 ml Chambord (or other raspberry liqueur)
  • 30 ml Lime juice
  • 20 ml Simple syrup
  • 1 tsp Black food coloring
  • Soda water
  • Ice

  1. Add the vodka, Chambord, lime juice, simple syrup and black food coloring to a cocktail shaker and give it a good shake.
  2. Put some large ice cubes into a highball glass and fill a third of it with soda water.
  3. Slowly pour the contents of the shaker into the glass and watch as the darkness takes over.

This is essentially a Fitzgerald with edible shimmer. As all sours it is quite… sour, but it’s also packed with flavors from the gin and the bitters.

  • 50 ml Gin (I used Tanqueray)
  • 30 ml Lemon juice
  • 20 ml Simple syrup
  • 3 drops of Angostura bitters
  • 1/3 tsp Edible Pearl shimmer
  • Ice
