Halloween Cocktail Recipes using Dutch chocolate Vodka drinksWho said Halloween was strictly for kids? This year, on Halloween single ladies everywhere will let loose and enjoy the party. Whether you’re hosting or haunting a Halloween party, go beyond the keg and get creative with some Halloween cocktail candy instead!

Heidi Klum has been called the master of Halloween. She started throwing her famous Halloween party in 2001 and it has been a hot ticket in Hollywood ever since. She spares no expense on her Halloween costumes, either. The supermodel turned super-mom has dressed up as a Hindu goddess, a midnight vampire, and Lady Godiva, just to name a few.

To make things easy, try throwing a decade theme party where everyone has to dress up as a famous character from the 1980s. Serve old school classics like TV dinners studded with candy eyeballs and crustless sandwiches in the shape of skulls. Stuff grapes with blue cheese to resemble eyeballs and scatter them on a platter with port wine cheese. Whatever your theme, go all out. And most importantly, make sure the drink are good!

Perfect for Halloween, Van Gogh Vodka has created a variety of flavored vodkas that are ideal for mixing up candy flavored cocktails. Think dutch chocolate, wild apple, and caramel flavored vodka. Their take on the sweet stuff includes Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cocktails, Candy Corn shooters and martinis like the Almond Joy and Starburst.
