Halloween Cocktails for a Girls’ Night In

If you’re throwing a pumpkin carving party with your girls, fall snacks and of course Halloween-themed strong cocktails will be needed!  The feminine and sassy Hpnotiq features their newest addition, Harmonie, a refreshing blend of Premium French Vodka, Infused Natural Fruits, Flowers and a Touch of Cognac, for the perfect mixer in an array of Halloween cocktail recipes.

Check out these three deliciously spooky recipes for your Halloween party!

The Black Widow
2 oz. Hpnotiq Harmonie Liqueur
1.5 oz.  Black Cherry Vodka
Splash Cranberry Juice

Garnish with a glitter Spider ring.  Add black licorice laces lining side of glass to create a spider web effect or use chocolate sauce to create a web in the glass, put glass in cooler to set, pour drink.

1 oz. super premium vodka
2 oz. lychee juice
Traditional Garnish, lychee eyeball:

Shake well.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Lychee Eyeball Garnish:
Dry lychee and fill with blueberry or raspberry preserves
Place blueberry, blossom end facing out, into the cavity.

1/2 lime, cut into 3 wedges
2 oz. ounces Hpnotiq Harmonie
1oz ounces gin
1 cup crushed ice
