  • Do you know what’s spookier than ghosts on Halloween? A ‘dead’ Halloween party. Halloween is a fun occasion to dress up, let loose, and enjoy with your friends. A Halloween party needs to be ‘lively’ with good food, music, innovative costumes, and of course, some spooky drinks to jazz up the night. We have created a Halloween party starter pack for the last-minute hosting challenges. In this list, you will find cocktails, appetizers, and classic Halloween movies to spice up your party.

    Combine water and honey in a small saucepan and let it simmer over medium heat until honey dissolves. Add rosemary sprigs and star anise after taking it off the heat. Let it steep for 10 minutes, then strain, cool it, and store it in an airtight jar for later.

    For the cocktail:

    In a shaker, add The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, pear juice, syrup, egg white, and ice. Shake until well combined. Garnish with rosemary sprigs.

    Halloween Appetizers:

    Nachos:

    How many times has a good plate of nachos been shared among friends while catching up? Many! It is also a staple food on game nights and other gatherings. Load your simple nachos with some beans, cheese, salsa, and sour cream, then pair it with the Cutty Sark or the Bootz Rum for the finishing touch!

    Garlic Butter Mushroom:

    Is your mouth watering yet? This Italian-style mushroom appetizer will pair well with some garlic bread, crackers, and The Macallan 12 YO Double Cask.

    Cheese, Pineapple, and Monaco Biscuit:

    A charcuterie board can’t do without these three elements – some cheese, pineapple, and Monaco biscuits or crackers. The Macallan 12 YO Double Cask pairs well with these finger foods.

    French Fries and Onion Rings:

    We know french fries and onion rings are usually treated as side dishes but have you ever been able to stop yourself from munching on them? They offer a perfect combination of crispiness, softness, and saltiness. Pair it with your favourite rum and coke cocktail using the Bootz rum.

    Classic Halloween Movies:

    • Hocus Pocus
    • Sleepy Hollow
    • The Shinning
    • Edward Scissorhands
    • The Nightmare Before Christmas
