Halloween candy isn't just for kids. You can incorporate some of your favorite candy and sweet flavors into your frozen concoction maker with delicious cocktails. Try serving up one of these tasty drinks for Halloween!

Candy Corn Cocktail 
Make a delicious cocktail that's sweet and looks just like that classic Halloween candy: Candy corn! All you need to do is combine three liquids of different densities and the right colors in an old-fashioned glass to get that candy corn look. Try: 

  • Grenadine and sweet-flavored vodka for the orange
  • Pineapple juice for the yellow 
  • Whipped cream or egg whites for the frothy whip top. 

Make sure you garnish with a few loose piece of candy corn of course!

Frozen Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail 
Peanut butter cups are a hugely popular Halloween treat every year. Try to recreate that unique flavor in your glass with this chocolately martini. Here's what you need.

  • 1 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce chocolate liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce white Cream de Cacao
  • 1 ounce peanut butter syrup 
  • Splash cream
  • Ice
  • Your margarita maker

Fill your frozen concoction maker's ice reservoir and pour each of the measured ingredients into your blender jar. Switch on your machine and watch it do the rest. Pour the peanut butter cup drink in a martini or margarita glass and garnish with the actual candy.

You can make similar cocktails for all your favorite candy bars. Want a coconut one? Just use rum and coconut instead of vodka and peanut butter.  

Chocolate Roll Cocktail 
Did you you know you can make a cocktail that tastes just like this century-year old candy by mixing just two ingredients? Combine root beer and coffee in a shot glass for a quick shot of this fun-sized chocolate candy. 

Frozen Bubble Gum
Enjoy a tasty bubble gum cocktail by mixing bubble gum-flavored vodka with milk in your frozen concoction maker. Add a pinch or two of sugar and serve with a whipped cream topping. 

Margarita with a Candy Rim 
If you don't want to make a whole candy-inspired drink for Halloween, at least use some candy as a garnish. Consider crushing up your favorite popping rock candy for the rim of your margarita. Garnishing with a bite-size treat can work well too. 

Your fellow Parrotheads at Margaritaville® Cargo remind you to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and obey all drinking laws.
