Halloween-Themed Drinks Based On My Favorite Horror Films

It’s now day 25 of Spooky Season! Today, I’m doing something a little different. It’s almost time to celebrate Halloween, that means a lot of Halloween parties are coming up! I was originally going to do a list of some random horror themed drinks for inspiration. I ended up spending a good hour or so trying to find recipes that I wanted to add to the list. After a while, I finally came up with how to give this list a personal touch. I decided to find a themed drink for each film in my Top 10 Favorite Horror Movies list! Some of these choices are similar in title, theme, or they contain some element that reminds me of the film. Some of these may be a bit of a stretch, but it’s all in good fun.
