5 Perfectly Savage Halloween Cocktail Ideas

Image
Halloween is nearly upon us. You've probably been searching for some eerily delicious drinks to serve at your Halloween party, or possibly something uniquely perfect to order when you head to the All Hallows' Eve bash at your favorite bar. Savage Scorpions scoured the internet for a few ideas, and we think these will work boo-tifully for any Halloween celebration. 




They say this first cocktail was invented over 100 years ago by members of Bermuda's Royal Naval Officer's Club. The name was given to describe the ominous hue of the drink as "the color of a cloud only a fool or dead man would sail under." Definitely not something to sail through, but for sure something to enjoy on a dark Halloween night. Of course, our Savage Scorpions would have no problem "diving" right in!
