A cinnamon whiskey, spiced rum and scotch drink is the perfect Halloween Cocktail Recipe for your Halloween Party! Easy to make as a big batch or serve with ghost meringues on top, or use dry ice!
We have made it extra spooky by making some ghost meringues as the garnish. These are optional, as the cocktail would be great all fall or winter long, all by itself, but who doesn’t want a yummy snack floating on top of your cocktail?
Also optional – if you want a fun garnish, but don’t want to make the ghost meringues we suggest some dry ice! The dry ice smog would make it spooky and fun!
Halloween Cocktail Recipe
It another year, and of course we had to have a Halloween list of inspired cocktails, if you have been around here long enough you know we loved a good holiday themed cocktail!
This whole cocktail stemmed from me seeing some Ghost Meringues online and they were on a cake. And I said, well, those are adorable and I wonder if I can put them in a cocktail. And after making some, we learned that they float (yay when plans work out!) and of course we knew we needed to put them on a Halloween cocktail recipe!
Again, these are optional, but they are oh so fun! We have seen them with candy eyes put on them, and that is certainly an easy option to make your ghosts comical looking. But, I just used some black food coloring and a toothpick and painted on eyes and mouths for their funny expressions.
They are simply egg whites and superfine sugar, they are light and tasty (and they float!) and a great snack with your cocktail. And the sight of them bobbing in the cocktail just made us smile, and hope it does to you too! We got the recipe from Something Sweet Something Savoury!
Nightmare on Whiskey Street Cocktail
Of course I had to pick a scary name for this drink, and while I could have gone for something ghosty, I picked a twist on a classic scary movie. For this Halloween cocktail recipe start with an ounce of cinnamon whiskey from your favorite distillery, add an ounce of spiced rum, and a dash (.25 ounce) Laphroaig whisky. We specifically say Laphroaig because of the smoky and peaty flavor. You can use any scotch you like, but we tried it with different brands and loved the flavor combo the Laphroaig gave us.
Then, we added an ounce and a half of apple cider along with just a barspoon of lemon juice. It took the sweetness of the cider out, and balanced the drink perfectly. And that’s it! Easy to even make this in a big batch format for a party in a punch bowl or large pitcher! Just multiply by how many drinks you think you will need!
Cinnamon whiskey is popular right now as a cocktail ingredient, and the apple flavor of the cider naturally goes with it. If this drink isn’t sweet enough for you, feel free to put brown sugar on the rim of the glass, so you get a bit of sweet when you sip.
Remember that Halloween is also about having fun, but also upping your spirits game! I am so punny!
