If you drink too much, you might become the walking dead yourself too,” said Jarek Krukow.

When creating the Scholar’s Mate, I wanted to incorporate heavy cream without compromising any of those elements, and became inspired by Sasha Petraske’s Dominicana. Sipping this cocktail late on a fall evening instantly transports me to a Victorian study where I’m reading my favorite macabre tales and smoking a cigar,” said Tiffany Nahm of Death & Co in New York City.

Around Hallow’s eve, I am inspired by the spirits and like to play around with the different ingredients in cocktails. The Kilkea Vampire’s Kiss mixes together a little magic: The Dingle Vodka gives the drink a robust flavor with a dry finish for optimum smoothness and clarity. The raspberry liquor offers a silky-smooth flavor of black raspberry liqueur and gives the cocktail that deep red color, perfect for the holiday. The Prosecco offers the necessary bubbles and a crisp finish that keeps the drink festive and fun,” said Master Mixologist Dawid Smietana, Food & Beverage Manager at The Keep, the traditional Irish pub and bistro within Kilkea Castle in County Kildare, Ireland.

This cocktail is dangerously crushable as you’ll enjoy the spice of a whiskey cocktail without such a spirit forward presence” Side Bar owner Frankie Sciuto. “At Side Bar, we pride ourselves on creating memorable experiences for our guests and Halloween is no exception to that. You can experience this decadent cocktail featuring blackberry puree, bourbon and fresh mint at Side Bar throughout the fall.”
