Carnival Cruise Line gets spooky with Halloween themed cocktails

If there’s one thing we love more than Halloween, it’s definitely cocktails.

So you can probably see why we jumped for joy when Carnival Cruise Line put together these delicious Halloween inspired Cocktails for us to celebrate the frightfully fun range of activities they’ve got happening on board this Halloween!

This cocktail will definitely be the hero of the party, unlike everyone’s favourite Spiderman villain.

55ml Skyy Vodka

1ml Malibu Rum

30ml Midori

60ml Pineapple Juice

10ml Blue Curacao

1 cherry

In order, combine ice, Bacardi and Ginger Ale into a petite cuvee glass. Top off your concoction with a float of Razzmatazz and garnish with a lime wedge.

Ghostly Spirits

Ghostly Spirits 6

This virgin cocktail is as red as fresh blood. Fortunately, it tastes a lot better.

45ml Raspberry Puree

30ml Cranberry Juice

15ml Grenadine

Directions:

Combine all ingredients with ice into a blender and blend. Pour into petite cuvee glass and enjoy!

No pumpkin spice in this potion. We wouldn’t recommend carving this one either.

30ml Orange Juice

30ml Red Sangria
