3. Mikoko Cooler – Cool off the atmosphere
Mikoko cooler is a cocktail for all parties and holidays, including Halloween. With its green color, it resembles something a witch may have concocted in her brewing pot, and its great refreshing taste fits perfectly when the atmosphere gets really heated.
For a Mikoko Cooler you need:
- 500ml coconut milk
- 120g coconut cream
- 120ml woodruff syrup

Mix it all together in a big bowl, as there is no need for any special preparation. The coconut flavor in the cocktail and the cooling properties of the ice make this a perfect cocktail to keep in the fridge and bring out once the atmosphere has reached its peak.
4. Witch Potion – The real Halloween drink
The ultimate Halloween drink, Witch Potion is the exact kind of cocktail people may believe is actually magical. This cocktail has a red color and you can add all sorts of little details to make it look even scarier. For the Witch Potion you need:
- 8 tablespoons red vodka
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- 400ml red berries juice of choice
You can choose to use any juice, although cranberry is commonly used for the Witch Potion. This drink is very tasty, packs a decent punch and if you add some gum with scary shapes or some green ice cubes, it can be even more intimidating.
The morning after
Halloween parties can be a real blast and the main downside is that the morning after, everyone wakes up with a massive hangover. Cocktails tend to give you the worst hangovers ever, so make sure that you are well prepared and you know how to cure them.
We recommend having some Hangover Aid on hand in order to make the nasty hangover go away. In fact, if you want to really make your guests feel good, a great idea would be to hand out small bags of Hangover Aid to all of them so they can all recover as fast as possible the next day.
Have a great party and remember that the hangover will come, so be well prepared for it!
