Spirited and Spooky Ghost Themed Cocktails for Halloween

Liquified Ghost

Vanilla flavored syrup is a quick and easy substitute for the vanilla simple syrup. It’s found at most grocery stores, usually in the coffee aisle.

2 oz. vodka
1 oz. vanilla simple syrup
1 oz. cream
2 oz. club soda

Mix all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and stir just to blend. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Ghostbuster

For cocktail fans of a certain age, the word ghostbuster will always be associated with ectoplasm and getting “slimed.” When the Irish cream in this recipe is dropped into the cocktail, it will spread into a ghostly apparition.

1 oz. peach schnapps
1 oz. melon liqueur
3-5 drops Irish cream liqueur

Pour the peach schnapps and the melon liqueur into a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Slowly add the Irish cream drop by drop into the middle of the drink.

Tequila Ghost

2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. Sambuca (or other anise liqueur)
