Halloween Cocktail Recipe BLOWOUT

So we decided this morning we need to come clean about the fact we're sort of Halloween Humbugs. We usually try to fake the funk, like we actually ENJOY putting on costumes and acting like idiots. We don't. But that doesn't stop us from mixing up the occasional festive holiday drink in honor of the ghouls and goblins on the prowl.

Check out some great Halloween-themed drink recipes we received from Herradura, TheBar.com, and Three Olives, as well as what we've scrounged from the Web, and if you've got recipes of your own fire 'em on over.

(Submitted on behalf of Herradura Tequila)

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Herradura Reposado
½ oz Monin Pumpkin Spice Syrup
3 oz half-and-half

Instructions:
Add ice to shaker and the ingredients in the order listed above
Shake well and strain into martini glass
Garnish with cinnamon

Our Notes
If, like us, you have no idea what Monin Pumpkin Spice Syrup is, you can read about and purchase it here. Also, Herradura is one of our all-time favorite tequilas, so we have a vested interest in trying this one out.

Ingredients
1.25 oz. Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka
.25 oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
.25 oz. half-and-half
.25 oz. simple syrup
.25 oz. shavings of white chocolate

Instructions
Fill shaker with ice
Add Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, half-and-half, and simple syrup

Our Notes
One thing we can say is these cocktail don't include any ingredients we've never heard of, though we think we'd be more inclined to chug sip the gin spirit than the ghost.
