The Bloody Tooth Cocktail is an eerily delicious blend of pomegranate juice and whiskey. Fresh pomegranate seeds lurk at the bottom of the glass that look like bloody teeth.

If you like sweet drinks like White Russians or Mudslides, you’ll probably like the Ghostini. Mix up vanilla vodka, hazelnut liqueur and white chocolate liqueur and shake it with heavy whipping cream for a ghostly delight.

Heather Christo blends up lime sorbet, tequila and fresh lime juice to make Slug Juice. To really get into the Halloween spirit, draw a slug face on a glass with a dry-erase marker.

Beware of the Living Dead if you drink too many Zamborita Cocktails. Muddle fresh apples and lemons and then shake it with Tequila, St. Germain and apple cider. A dash of cinnamon brings this fall-flavored drink together.
