Halloween is right around the corner – time for some scary good cocktail ideas!

Keep reading for the recipes…if you DARE!

These Halloween shots and cocktails use a deliciously dark liqueur – Patron XO Cafe.  It’s a blend of Patron Silver tequila and coffee.

The first Halloween shot is called the “Lizzie Borden.”  (Is it wrong that the only reason I know about Lizzie Borden is because of a morbid jump rope song we sang on the playground as kids?)

This shot is a blend of coffee liqueur and Irish Whiskey.  I adorned my shot glass with an “ax.”  Actually, it’s a cleaver necklace from one of my favorite whimsical jewelry designers from North Hollywood, CA – Jenny and JimBob!

If you want to have a little extra fun with your Halloween cocktails, try serving them over “Ice Screams.”  I actually really liked these silicone ice cube trays, they pop out so easily!
