Guests at your Halloween party will be THIRSTY! This Blood Bar, featuring three chilling cocktails — Stabbery Daiquiri, Gin & Tourniquet and Hemoglobpolitan — is sure to satisfy vampires, ghouls and all your visitors. Two Halloween drink recipes below and more details posted all week long. (Serving kids or teens? Make the non-alcoholic versions like we did.)
We invited guests to mix their own drinks and displayed stylized recipe cards for each cocktail in frames that were spray painted black to match our other serving pieces.
Provide stirring straws, cleverly labeled as “Hypodermic Stirring Needles,” for guests to mix in all those ghastly ingredients before sipping. Get the Blood Bar printables here.
