Halloween Cocktails Part 3

You can never get enough Halloween Cocktail recipes… Well, I can’t. I hope you’re the same.
As ever, I have been scouring the web for interesting Halloween cocktails, all to be sampled by myself and my guests at this year’s Halloween part!


This is one of those iconic cocktails. I must have had a halloween cocktailsfew fake zombies over the years, but it wasn’t until I got to the Match Bar in London, that I realised just how potent the real deal is.
They are so strong, that orders are limited to two per person, per night.
As a result, it’s only fair to make a clear warning that this drink is VERY VERY STRONG.
I can’t accept responsibility for you doing anything silly after drinking it.

I have looked high and low for the recipe, and to be honest, the measures just don’t seem right (there is very little mixer and a whole heap of alcohol), but then, it does taste pretty much like pure alcohol when you buy it in a cocktail bar!


  • 1/2 part white rum
  • 1 1/2 part golden rum
  • 1 part dark rum
  • 1/2 part over-proof rum
  • 1 part lime juice
  • 1 part pineapple juice
  • 1 part papaya juice (or mango juice)
  • Slice of lime


  1. Stir together all these ingredients (except for the over-proof rum), or shake them together if you have a fancy cocktail shaker  and poor into a glass over ice.
  2. To finish, you can be all fancy and take your slice of lime, spinkle some sugar on it, then place it in the top of the glass. Then poor a dash of the overproof rum on top. At the Match bar, they then set fire to it, but I wouldn’t recommend that you do that unless you have a fire extinguisher handy!

Dawn of the Dead

One of my own recipes.
It’s an adaptation of one of my holiday cocktails which I have amended to provide that Halloween feel.
It tastes great, and is pretty strong, so only drink this if you’re prepared to get pretty wasted.


  • 1 measure of white over-proof rum
  • 1/2 measure of golden rum
  • 1 measure cherry liqueur
  • Dash of Grenadine
  • Dash of black vodka
  • Pineapple and coconut juice


  1. Put the white rum, golden rum, and cherry liqueur into a cocktail shaker with ice. Give them a shake and strain into a highball glass.
  2. Pour in some pineapple and coconut juice, the amount is down to your personal taste and alcohol tolerance. I personally like to fill the glass three quarters of the way full.
  3. Add ice.
  4. Add a splash of grenadine, using a pourer (one of these things). It the liquid should sink to the bottom of the glass.
  5. Now add a splash of black vodka, but do so by pouring it in over an upturned teaspoon; this should ensure that the vodka floats at the top of the drink. As black vodka isn’t really black, but is more very dark green, your should get the following results!

Voodoo Queen

I’ve only recently found this recipe, so haven’t had a chance to try it yet. However, it looks great and it’s definitely going to be the first cocktail that I try for Halloween this year!


  • 15ml blue curacao
  • 20ml Bourbon
  • 20ml Galliano
  • Orange juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Dash of Grenadine


  1. Take a 275ml wine glass and pour in 15ml of blue curacao.
  2. Add lots of ice.
  3. Pour over 20ml of bourbon followed by 20ml of Galliano liqueur.
  4. Gently pour in equal quantities of orange and pineapple juice.
  5. To give a really spooky, voodoo finish, drizzle over the top with grenadine (nozzle recommended).

Witches Potion

Not to be confused with the Witches Brew mentioned in my previous post. This little number is a bit different, and looks very cool. It’s a bit of a milky one, which is different to the other cocktails that have been posted so far, and it’s also very easy to make.


  • A can of half cream and half milk (half and half)
  • 30ml blue curacao
  • 30ml white rum


  1. In a cocktail shaker mix 15 fluid oz of half cream and half milk, and pour over ice.
  2. Add 30ml shot of blue curacao and 30ml of white rum.
  3. Serve.

Swamp Water

Another simple one. Nice and brightly coloured, and an unoffensive fruity taste, perfect for parties!


  • 30ml blue curacao
  • 30ml vodka
  • Orange juice
  • Garnish (cherry and slice of orange)


  1. Pour 30ml blue curacao and 30ml vodka over ice.
  2. Top with orange juice.
  3. Decorate with a slice of orange and cherry.
