Halloween may be more for the little ghouls and goblins than for grown-ups, but that doesn’t mean adults can’t indulge as well. Here are three quick and easy Halloween-inspired cocktails for grown-ups who’d rather drink their sweets this October 31st.
Sweet and Spooky Creamsicle
With only two ingredients, it doesn’t get much simpler than this. Creamy orange notes with a subtle alcoholic edge define this smooth, easy-to-prepare cocktail.

- 3.5 oz. Orange Mango Sparkling ICE
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve with candy corn and rock candy swizzle stick.
This pumpkin-inspired highball from Whiteface Lodge‘s lead mixologist Zachary Blair uses spiced rum as its base, mixed with Hickory Syrup and pumpkin puree. Their combination, topped off with club soda and a splash of lemon, provides a woody finish that complements this light, refreshing cocktail.

- 1 oz hickory syrup
- Splash of lemon
