We're big fans of the signature cocktail idea -- and Halloween is prime time to try out bizarre new drinks. If you want to keep things uncomplicated, though, you can serve orange or blood-colored cocktails (screwdrivers, say, or classic Bloody Marys) and offer black licorice sticks as stirrers. Or drop a few candy corns into simple yet elegant orange martinis. But if you want to get really creative, again, the sky's the limit. Here are some ideas:
- Stuff peeled radishes with pimiento olive halves, drop into ice cube trays and freeze into eyeball ice cubes.
- Freeze cranberry juice in plastic gloves, then cut off the gloves before dropping "hands" into punch bowls filled with your libation of choice.
- Garnish drinks with plastic doll parts, vampire teeth or eyeball-esque peeled grapes.
