    Even if you don’t intend to offer a full bar at your Halloween party, a signature cocktail is always a nice touch. Any of the drinks below can be made in a larger batch and served in pitchers. Assemble the ingredients but do not  mix in advance.


    If you are offering an elaborate bar it might be fun to serve both.

    Cocktails are pretty to look at and easy to drink,  so have plenty of chilled non-alcoholic  options on hand. Sparkling Italian sodas and mineral water are  good choice.  It is nice to have a light white wine for those who prefer it. Many people watching their weight try to avoid high-calorie mixed drinks.


    Always offer food as soon as drinks are served.
