Since Halloween haunts a Saturday this year it provides a special opportunity for some adult fun. With the grown-ups in mind, we wanted to share 3 cool cocktails recipes from our friends at Party City.  They are just the right thing to make your party fun and festive.

Party City recently hosted an exclusive event at the historically haunted Algonquin Hotel in NYC.  The “Cauldron of Creativity” Halloween Party was a bone-chilling two-day event that was capped off with some delicious boooooos-y cocktails. The event also featured a “Costumes of the Catwalk” runway show with this year’s hottest costume trends and a ‘Day Of The Dead’ makeup tutorial.  You can also check out both of these at the bottom of this post. We hope you enjoy these spooktacular ways to celebrate fright night this year!
