Graveyard Grapefruit Paloma
Connecting this classic cocktail to the reason for the season is as easy as serving in a set of black glasses or using drink labels cut into headstone shapes, marked for party guests. The paloma recipe is super simple, and has remained a great staple for any host: just mix tequila, lime juice, and a splash of sparkling grapefruit for this light and sweet option.
This drink is the perfect match for a party punch bowl.

The drink will start to take on some of that berry blood red color and is sure to be hit for spooky partygoers.
For a truly colorful option, whip up a batch of witch’s brew: orange juice, sparkling lemon water, and melon liqueur combine to create this bright and bubbly drink. Serve in a martini glass to really capitalize on the aesthetic of the melon liqueur, which is often bottled in neon green and yellow options practically designed for this time of year.
