Last Halloween was lucky enough to be on a Saturday, so we stocked up our stroller with beer for the Husband and punch for me and the girls. And even though I enjoyed drinking some fun punch while the girls were trick-or-treating, I was already scheming about what Halloween cocktails I would be drinking this year, after weaning the baby.
Then I realized that it’s a leap year, and that means that Halloween is actually on Monday instead of Sunday. So sad trombone. But at least I can have some fun making a few creepy mocktails. After all, what other time of year can you add things like fake teeth and candy eyeballs to your drinks and call it okay?
You can join in on the mocktail fun, too. I’ve got 10 different Halloween mocktails to share today, all perfect for a fun night of house-hopping. Whether you want to make something creepy like Bloody Shirley Temples, or cute like Hocus Pocus Cocktail, whip up a pitcher and bring it along as you trick-or-treat with your kids this Halloween.
