The tale of spirits meeting spirits, the Ghost Story is both crisp and mysterious. With a hint of floral allure from St. Germain (an elderflower liqueur) and a zesty kick of fresh lime juice, the Ghost Story promises an ethereal escape with every sip.

Ever wondered what’s bubbling in a witch’s cauldron? I’m pretty sure it’s this magical mixture of tart, sweet, and otherworldly flavors. This cocktail is a showstopper, bubbling with witchy wonders and a taste that’s pure magic.
3. Zombie Walk
This drink is an undead favorite, packed with a fruity punch that’ll have you walking like a zombie (responsibly, of course). It’s a fruity explosion intertwined with a sweet vanilla twist.
Dance on the line between heavenly sweetness and spicy midnight mischief. With a tropical kiss and a hint of heat, this cocktail balances the divine with a touch of the devilish. It’s sinfully good and saintly smooth, all in one!
Nothing screams autumn like pumpkins, and this drink combines the best flavors of the season. The Pumpkin Shandy is like a cozy sweater for your taste buds, perfect for a chilly Halloween evening with friends.
