Halloween Cocktails with Whiskey
Whiskey isn’t the first choice for Halloween cocktails or cocktails in general. People lean towards vodkas and rums to make their drinks. But whiskey adds such a great flavor to any cocktail it is worth trying. Halloween is particularly perfect for testing.
Whiskey is a dark alcohol which means it is perfect for Halloween. That darkness will lend itself to the drink and the overall theme of the season. In fact, you can get some pretty…spooky red colors using whiskey in your cocktails.

Making Whiskey Cocktails
People often think that making cocktails with cheaper alcohols is the way to go. However, a good cocktail is meant to enhance the flavor of the alcohol, not cover it up. There is nothing wrong with going for top shelf whiskey. Especially when it comes to whiskey.
Whiskey has amazing flavors and Halloween cocktails with whiskey respect those flavors. They accentuate the whiskey rather than hide it. Does that mean you should make all your cocktails with top shelf stuff? No, but don’t be afraid of doing it if you have some top shelf on hand.
