I Made 6 Halloween Cocktails That Are Going To Be The Life (Or Death?) Of Your Party

They're all good, but the Corpse Reviver is probably my favorite.

I love, love, love, Halloween, and I love a fun and fancy little cocktail. But why, dear readers, should we pay $25 for one of these fancy little cocktails out at a bar... when we can create the perfect Halloween cocktails at home?

I have taken it upon myself to create (or recreate from things I've found online) seven perfect cocktails for this spooky season, from easy and simple to a little more involved. I hope they're killer. Here's how to make them:

1. Dracula's Whiskey Sour

Your ingredients:

What you'll need to do:

1. Shake up the whiskey, simple syrup, lemon juice, and egg white in a shaker. 

2. Strain into a glass. I like it over ice but I didn't do it here because I wanted it to look pretty. The egg white will be foamy! 

3. Pour the red wine into the foam over the back of a spoon. It should float on top and hopefully make a nice gradient.

4. Garnish with a maraschino cherry. 

2. Apple Cider Mule

The ingredients:

What to do:

1. Combine vodka, cider, lemon juice, and ginger beer in a glass or shaker. STIR. Don't shake it. I shook it like a fool because I forgot that ginger beer is carbonated, and it exploded! Don't be like me. 

2. Pour into a glass over ice. 

3. Garnish with an apple peel if you have the patience. 

Voilà. (I genuinely don't know how I took a picture this good so I wanted to include it here!)
