Mad Scientist Mixology: Halloween Cocktail Recipes.

A giant bowl of wispy punch is certainly festive, but a true ghost-host offers their guest customized cocktails that suit their own tastes. Here's a few ideas to get your fall festivities popping.

Garnishes: ANY mixed drink can get a scary-fun makeover with a frightful garnish. Simply mix up drinks per usual, but sink one of the following into your highball or martini glass:

  • Plastic spider rings
  • Gummy worms
  • Novelty eyeballs
  • A few drops of black and red food coloring
  • Candy corn
  • Plastic skulls or bones
