Spookily Simple Gin Cocktails

The star of our gin-based cocktails is our SPAR London Gin: juniper berries are presented front and centre in London Dry gins, and this one can really hold its own against the mixers and other ingredients.

Vampire’s Delight

Fill your punch bowl with this unnervingly thick cocktail, with a sharp kick of cranberries and sour fruit, and a scarlet shade to appeal to and satisfy the thirstiest of vampires! To serve 8 you will need:

  • 750ml of Cranberry Juice
  • 500g tub of Frozen Black Forest Fruits
  • 100ml of SPAR London Gin
  • Ice cubes

Blend your fruit and cranberry juice together in a food processor. Once thick and smooth, pour in your gin and give it a quick stir before pouring into your punch bowl and topping with ice cubes.

Lemon and Slime

This refreshing punch will serve eight and you can easily turn this gruesome refresher into a non-alcoholic version by leaving out the Gin. You will need:

  • 1l of SPAR Lemonade
  • 2 limes
  • 4 kiwi fruits
  • 100ml of SPAR London Gin

Pour your lemonade into your punch bowl and add the juice from your limes. Halve the kiwis and scoop out the flesh into a food processor. Blend down and add to your bowl. Finish with your London Gin and serve over ice.

A Devilishly Dark Rum Cocktail

The warming taste of rum is a perfect representation of the fire of hell on Halloween, and this rum cocktail recipe features SPAR Dark Rum at the helm – or gates.

Pirate’s Gold

This recipe will serve six. You will need:

  • 180ml of Southern Comfort
  • 180ml of SPAR Dark Rum
  • 120ml of SPAR Lime Cordial
  • 240ml of SPAR Pure Orange Juice

Add all your ingredients into a food processor with ice cubes and pulse until smooth. Serve in a tall glass, and raise them to the Jack Sparrow tributes at your party.

Vicious Halloween Vodka Cocktails

The sharp and clean flavours of vodka make an ideal base for many popular cocktails. We have used SPAR Imperial Vodka to create these scarily simple recipes:

The Devil’s Torch

Release the devil inside this Halloween. To serve four, you will need:

  • 200ml of SPAR Imperial Vodka
  • 200ml of SPAR Sauvignon Blanc
  • 3 tablespoons of Strawberry syrup / strawberry sauce

Shake your ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Pour into martini glasses and serve.

Born to be Bad: Classic Brandy Cocktail

With the comforting, zesty flavour of dried fruit and flowers, brandy doesn’t sound like a classic ingredient in a Halloween drink – but part of Halloween is the shock factor, and your guests will love this easy brandy cocktail made with SPAR Brandy.

Fire in the Blood

This recipe serves four and you will need:

  • 400ml of SPAR Cranberry Juice
  • 3 tbsp of SPAR Brandy
  • 2 tbsp of SPAR Lime Cordial
  • 5tsp of Tabasco

Mix your ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and shake well until chilled. Strain into your cocktail glasses and serve. It’s a fiery taste that will linger on the lips and the tongue until Bonfire night…

A Whisky Based Cocktail to give you the Willies

Bring a touch of sophistication to any party, with a Halloween cocktail with whisky. This twist on a classic combination of whisky and orange juice is sweet enough to suit even those that aren’t a fan of the strong stuff. The basis for this demonic delight is SPAR’s Glen Dhu Whisky.

Smouldering Jack o' Lantern

To serve four, you will need:

  • 120ml of SPAR Glen Dhu Whisky
  • 120ml of Sweet Vermouth
  • 120ml of SPAR American Ginger Ale
  • 120ml of SPAR Orange Juice

Add all ingredients to a blender and strain into martini glasses. Top with a slice of orange and serve.
