Have Your Halloween Candy and Drink It, Too

Why wait and dig through the Halloween bucket leftovers? These candy-inspired cocktails can be enjoyed right now.

What's better than Halloween candy? Not much when you're a kid. And even as adults, we can put the candy consequences out of our mind (for a minute) and dive pretty hard into a bag of chocolate candy mix. But also, as adults, there are more exciting ways to enjoy Halloween candy. Here are six you need to know about before Halloween hits.

Cemetery Slime Punch

Nonalcoholic Cemetery Punch

Kids will flip for this gross-looking punch. Since little ghouls and goblins will likely be pumped up on sugar from trick-or-treat bags, diet root beer and frozen yogurt won't add to the impact.
