Bellinis, ciders, vodka drinks, and mules – even basic mixologists can serve and prepare these seasonal Halloween cocktail recipes. Most of the drinks on this list only have a few ingredients.

All of them are the perfect things to serve (and drink) in the fall and autumn months.

1. Hot Apple Cider

When you make this drink, it will fill your home with cozy holiday aromas. Mulled apple cider is spiced to perfection. Just follow the recipe, and you’ll have a perfect mug of cider every single time.

This recipe includes how to make it with or without alcohol.

2. Pumpkin Apple Cider

When you can’t decide between apple pie and pumpkin pie, make this tasty drink. Pumpkin apple cider is delicately spiked with either bourbon or apple liqueur for a tasty fall libation.

Stirring it with a cinnamon stick is the perfect way to enjoy it.

3. Spooky Halloween Cocktails

Serve both Vampire’s Kiss and Haunted Highball at your next Halloween party. Both spooky cocktails are vodka based, but each has distinctly different looks and tastes.

Vampire’s Kiss is zesty and sweet, with orange liqueur, sugar, and lemon juice. The red dye around the rim looks like blood – a wonderfully eerie design for your party.

The haunted highball is quite different. The rich vanilla vodka, sweet white chocolate liqueur, white cream de cacao, and half and half make this a delightful dessert drink. The little ghost’s eyes and mouth are a must-add!

4. Caramel Apple Martini

Serve a caramel apple martini any time of year, but especially around apple harvest time in the fall. You’ll love the cinnamon sugar around the rim and the fact that this smooth cocktail only has three ingredients.

It’s the perfect thing to drink after spending time picking apples or at the pumpkin patch.

5. Frozen Old Fashioned Slush

This colorful adult slush drink has a bourbon base and a bunch of other ingredients that catapult the frozen old fashioned to stardom. You’ll want to make this every holiday.

The frozen orange juice concentrate, bitters, and cherry juice will remind you of your favorite Old Fashioned drink.

6. Cider and Maple Old Fashioned

Another way to reimagine the old fashioned is to add some apple cider and maple syrup. One taste and you’ll be making cider and maple old fashioned cocktails for your friends next.

This cocktail is perfect for anyone that thinks typical old fashioned drinks are too strong.

7. Peach Raspberry Bellini

These lovely fall drinks are ideal for a fall brunch. The deep orange and red colors mimic the foliage that’s turning colors outside. Plus, a peach raspberry bellini has the fruitiest and sweetest flavors too.

8. Apple Pie Sangria

Diced red and white apples float in the copper mugs along with whole cinnamon sticks. You can tell just by looking at them that the apple pie sangria will have a sweet and spicy flavor. What you can’t see is the hidden kick it has from the wine and vodka.

9. Pumpkin Spice White Russians

Another way to bring a fall twist to a classic drink is to stir together a pumpkin spice white Russian. It has all the same White Russian flavors you love – vanilla vodka, Kahlua, and half and half – but with some added pumpkin spice and a cinnamon stick to fancify it.

10. Apple Cider Manhattan

Apple cider and bourbon both have rich, spicy flavors. It just makes sense to mix them together to create a fall cocktail. Apple cider Manhattans are elegant and fun to sip slowly at an elegant cocktail party.

11. Caramel Pear Cider

If you don’t normally enjoy pear flavors, let the caramel pear cider help you fall in love with it. It is delicately sweet with a ribbon of buttery caramel flavors that are entwined with notes of crisp apples.

Serve it hot with a cinnamon stick, and enjoy it on cold days.

12. Pumpkin Old Fashioned

This fall drink is made with real pumpkin puree – not just the spice. You can taste the sweetness from the pumpkin as it mixes with the bold bourbon. Use black walnut bitters in the pumpkin old fashioned for some nutty undertones that enhance the citrus flavors.

Mixing real apple cider with cognac gives you the ultimate fall libation. An apple cider sidecar is a festive fall cocktail that only has four simple ingredients.

Serve it in a showy cocktail glass, and it’s ready to serve.
