Here are 13 beverages – a mix of wine, champagne, prepackaged cocktails and a variety of non-alcoholic beverages – perfect for a Halloween party even for families with kids. Or one where you want to be sure that even the non-tipplers will leave feeling giddy with Halloween joy.

13 best drinks – mocktails, wine, cocktails and craft beer – for the Halloween party 2021

1. Curious Elixirs’ No. 4 Blood Orange Spritz.

The Blood Orange Spritz is non-alcoholic, refreshing and fun. This limited edition – just for Halloween! – is an Italian classic with a twist: it also features American ginseng, non-alcoholic prosecco, tulsi and turmeric.

3. Black O’ Lantern Stout from Wasatch Brewery.

Black O’ Lantern pumpkin stout is a Frankenstein quaff: it’s a cross between imperial stout and pumpkin ale. The brand says this concoction is both chocolatey and spicy – nothing wrong with that! It’s available only until November, though – you’d be mad to let the season go by without trying this one.

11. The Prisoner Wine Company

This red blend from Napa Valley is full of dark fruit aromas with baking spice, vanilla, and mocha. While it’s a splurge when it comes to price (the tariff is rather terrifying, actually), we love the creativity of the label on The Prisoner Wine Company Derange 2017. It definitely gives us all the Halloween feels just looking at it.

BUY NOW: $99.99.

12. Kin Euphorics Light Wave.

The non-alcoholic canned beverages made by Kin Euphorics (Karly Kloss is a co-founder) make us feel good just reading the labels. For the Night Wave flavor, there are notes of lavender-vanilla, smoked sea salts, and passionflower along with “mind-calming ingredients.” Or, as the brand says: “think naked forest bathing at midnight.” Sounds like Halloween to us!
