Scarily Good Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Spookily Simple Halloween Gin Cocktails

The star of our Halloween gin 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. Watch our scarily straightforward recipe video for our Vampire’s Delight cocktail below.

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 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.
