Halloween is right around the corner. The most important thing to decide on is your costume, but a close second is what you’ll be drinking. We’re here to make that second choice easy. Here are six perfect costume and cocktail pairings just in time for the Halloween weekend.
Dark ‘n’ Stormy
“Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum”. If your Halloween costume this year involves a hook, an eyepatch and a black pirate hat, a Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s blend of rum and spicy ginger is the one for you. There isn’t any other drink that you’d want to be sipping while you’re surfing the seven seas. Even if it’s just a sea of booze.
This one is so obvious that the drink should pretty much be part of the costume. A classy blend of white vermouth and gin, we all know James Bond’s tipple of choice. We all know how it should be prepared, too. All together now: shaken, not stirred.
Good whiskey, a dash of bitters, and an orange peel. They call it an Old Fashioned for a reason – it’s a classic, with a no-nonsense demeanor similar to the most ruthless mob boss. Nothing says “badass” (or at least “I think I’m a badass”) than a fake mafia suit and a stiff drink like this.
A combination of smooth bourbon and premium sparkling mineral water – and what would a real cowboy drink other than good American whiskey? Whiskey Highballs are quick, easy, and killer, just like that cheap cowboy costume you bought on Taobao.
If you’re going for more “pretty in pink” than “covered in blood” this Halloween, then this BottlesXO signature could be for you. French raspberry liqueur and Italian prosecco. You can’t get much fancier than that.
Kind of sweet, kind of dangerous, and not afraid to be a little different. That was what the Flappers were all about, and the smooth, citrus rum and lime punch of a Daquiri are all about that too.
