    Summery sangria gets a flavorful update for fall with pumpkin pie spice, bourbon and apple cider. Make a big batch to serve in a hollowed-out pumpkin for a dramatic presentation.

  • Bloody Brain Halloween Cocktail

    Bloody Brain Shooter

    Channel your inner mad scientist to create this creepy-looking shooter. Add chilled vodka and lime juice to a shot glass, then use a straw to drip Irish cream on top. The acidic lime juice will cause the cream to curdle, creating realistic blobs of \"brain.\"

  • Brain Halloween Cocktail

    Made famous by super-spy James Bond, this chilling recipe, named for 007's deceased love, is sure to give you the vapors.
