Tastes Like Team Spirit: 3 Creepy Halloween Cocktails to Enjoy with Coworkers

How does your cast of characters, client whisperers, budget keepers and deadline slayers celebrate Halloween? Slices of sheet cake in the kitchen? Company-wide trick-or-treating—complete with kids, costumes and candy? Those are office classics, for sure. But if you’re looking to add a team-building twist to the festivities this year, consider shaking up a few of these spooky, spirited concoctions. Even if you’ve got mocktails in the mix, we’re pretty sure the bonding will begin before you can say “Beetlejuice!”

Witch’s Brew

This may look like pure evil in a glass, but one gulp of this laughter-inducing brew, and you and Janice from Accounts will be palling around like long-lost friends.

A magical take on the classic Moscow Mule:

1 ½ fl oz black vodka
2 drops black food coloring
½ cup ginger beer
½ fl oz lime juice
black raspberry garnish

The Extra Terrestrial

You might not be phoning home for a while with this out-of-this-world elixir in hand. Sit back, take a sip, and move those mostly email-based colleague convos offline and into the real world.

½ oz lime gelatin
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup ginger beer or ginger ale
1 ½ fl oz vodka

The Goblin King

A potent potion, we will not lie. But when you’re toasting to hard work and growth, no guts no glory!

2 fl oz tequila
1 fl oz lime juice
¼ tsp matcha powder
¼ jalapeño, sliced
1 tsp simple syrup
1 drop green food coloring

From our team to yours, happy Halloween!
