Blood Thirsty Cocktails with Cherry Good

Halloween is just a few days away and if you're having a Halloween party, now is the time to plan your food and drink to keep all your guests happy. For food ideas you can read my blog posts on Mummy Sausage Rolls, Spooky Shortbread Fingers, Oozing Brain cupcakes and Monster Cupcakes. If you still need some party accessories ideas then take a look at my party inspiration post. Hopefully some of this will inspire you to make your party spooktacular!

So that's the food and accessories, now to the one thing every party needs - cocktails! Your party guests will love these delicious cocktails, they're devilishly good and there's even a mocktail for the non-drinkers. Each of these recipes uses Cherry Good (available in supermarkets) in the ingredients which means they are fabulously fruity and the perfect blood red colour for halloween.
