7 Halloween Cocktails You’re Less Likely to Regret

7 Halloween Cocktails You’re Less Likely to Regret

I went down the Halloween cocktail rabbit hole the other day, and (wow!) there are some spooky, wild drinks out there. You might encounter Glowing Jell-o Shots, or candy corn cocktails, or even an eyeball punch. There's no shortage of cocktails you'd probably regret the next day - weird mixes of alcohols, overly sweet, lots of gummy worms in drinks, etc. So, I thought I'd do a quick round up of Halloween cocktails that were a bit less theme-y, ones that still had some ghoul and ghost, but also seemed delicious.
