Halloween has become so much more than one scary night or simply trick-or-treating. It has become a month long event with scares, vacations and of course food and drink. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of some of our favorites for the month October to help celebrate this scary holiday.

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, the country’s best-selling American single malt from the state’s first legal distillery since Prohibition, has a menu of delicious cocktails to warm your soul, whether you’re sipping at home on the couch or dressed in your finest costume at a Halloween party. The cocktail recipes below are made from Stranahan’s Blue Peak (Drizly & ReserveBar), an American single malt distilled at high altitude, aged in new American oak barrels, and Solera finished, resulting in a rich and mellow flavor that lends itself to whiskey cocktails.

NEFT Vodka has put together some wonderful Halloween cocktail recipes that are made to perfection with their award-winning, super-premium Austrian craft sipping vodka with Russian heritage. NEFT is packaged in a container, making it a very adult like trick or treat that you will love to open up. The container is as unique as its taste: a portable and unbreakable barrel that closely resembles a small oil drum, which conveniently keeps NEFT cold for hours. The purity of NEFT’s two clean ingredients – pristine, oxygen-rich spring water from the Austrian Alps and only four, gluten-free, non-GMO ancient rye grains farmed in lower Saxony – means minimal impurities, which is reflected in the need for only one distillation. The result is a creaminess on the tongue, a rounded earthiness, and a slightly smooth finish so good you’ll want to sip it neat.

NEFT is available at: NEFT Vodka
