This is normally where we tell you about a fun foodie event going around town but since everyone should be out trick-or-treating we've decided to skip that part and jump right into the good stuff ,which in today's case is booze. 

We have three spooky cocktails recipes for you to shake up to help scare all the ghost and goblins away and return your sanity. 

First up is the Ward Eight a tangy cocktail made up of whiskey, orange juice, lemon juice and a splash of sweet grenadine.  This is a perfect drink  to have in hand while watching a few scary movies. Since it's a holiday, you have our permission to double the whiskey (we won't tell, promise!). 

If you want to take a more "Twilight" approach to your drinks, mix up a glass of Liqueur de Clarimonde. This Gothic style chocolate-infused port wine is exactly what we would imagine Old World vampires would drink -- that is, if they could drink. Which, duh, they obviously can't because they're vampires. 

or you can literally "darken your spirits" with an eerie Black Window Martini made with Blavod  Vodka -- it's actually black. This particular recipe calls for raspberry vodka but we'd rather use cherry. Either way, we're happy to have a martini in hand!

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
