3 Great Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Not going trick-or-treating this Halloween, but still looking for something special? Perhaps something of the adult beverage variety? Belvedere Vodka has come up with some new drinks to celebrate the season -- I don't have an allegiance to any particular vodka brand, so I say just use what you've got. Enjoy, and call a cab! Or drink these whilst watching "Hocus Pocus" at home, obviously.

1.5 oz Vodka
1 oz Fresh lemon juice
1 oz Pineapple syrup

Hocus Pocus Punch

1.5 oz Pomegranate Juice
1.5 oz Orange Juice

Pulp from one passion fruit
