Make Your Halloween Party SPOOK-tacular With These Halloween Cocktails

I have searched Pinterest, Google, and even liquor company's Facebook pages in search of the ultimate collection of ideas for Halloween Cocktails. Now I'm going to share them with you, my followers. These are adult cocktails, so if any one of you are having a Halloween Party this year or go to one and any of these cocktails are being served or you're the one doing the serving please come back and leave a comment on this post as to how awesome or horrible the cocktail recipe was! I say horrible, because sometimes a mix of things "sounds" good on paper, but truth be told once you mix it all together and take a sip you wish you were a zombie and had no taste buds!

CHEERS to a Happy Halloween!!
