    4677ef23 1959 4039 b550 d5138271b917
    That lychee and cherry "eyeball" is certainly creepy but is it terrifying enough to keep you away from that mix of dark rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and ginger beer?

    It's as black as the darkest heart—but so tasty and easy to drink. The cocktail is made with lychee, gin, house-made activated coconut husk charcoal, lemon, amaro, and egg white.
  7. Melrose Umbrella Co.'s "Pie"

    According to bartender Darwin Manahan, a huge earthquake in the '30s killed a number of prostitutes who lived in the rooms above the bar. Some say they still haunt the space, so Manahan created this—a mix of mezcal, blood orange, Jamaica cordial, and lime juice—to toast to their ghosts.
  9. Spare Room's "Dr. Teeth," "Bed Sheet Ghost," & "Children of the Corn"
    1e172b3e 65c0 4512 88f8 18561745b102
    Halloween candy, meet the cocktail. "Dr. Teeth" is an Old Fashioned with Milky Way-infused bourbon, "Bed Sheet Ghost" is a Pina Colada with Butterfinger-infused pineapple rum. The aptly named Children of the Corn is a Moscow Mule with candy corn-infused vodka.
