Whether you're prepping potions for the family or shaking up creative concoctions for a crowd, we have festive cocktail, cider, and punch recipes for hauntingly good times.
Honey Cider-Beer Cocktails
The cider-honey base of this fall beverage makes enough for both adult and kid twists: one with pale ale, the other with sparkling cider. Beer and cider are refreshing and lower in sugar and alcohol than stronger potions, which tend to go down a bit too easily. The cider syrup needs time to cool; let it rest while you traverse the neighborhood; then mix up the drinks when you return. Cut the apple slices for the kids' drinks into spooky shapes before adding to the pitcher.
