Halloween is not just for kids, it’s for adults to dress up, making scary food, and silly cocktails and celebrate too! I have always been a huge fan of Halloween even if I am the worst person when it comes to haunted houses and scary costumes. Forget putting me near anything that resembles a clown. I hate them! But there is so much else that Halloween brings. We go to pumpkin patches to pick our own pumpkins. We do corn mazes and scavenger hunts. I love going with the kids to pick out their costumes and taking them trick or treating. Let’s not forget decorating the house in fun spiders, ghosts and pumpkins too.
Celebrating Halloween with a Halloween Vampire Fizz Champagne Cocktail:
As the kids get older, we start to make it about the adults too. This year we are having some friends over after we take all our kids trick or treating. I have a whole buffet of fun food to serve up and some juicy cocktails in the making like this Vampire’s Fizz Champagne Cocktail. Who doesn’t like a little bubbly?
Champagne isn’t just for weddings and date nights, you can turn Halloween into something really special by popping a cork and inviting friends over. Serve up some pumpkin brownies and Halloween snowballs and you’ve got yourself a party!

Halloween Vampire Fizz Champagne Cocktail
If you a fruit cocktail kind of person than you will love this combination. Use any coulis you want if forest fruit isn’t hitting your taste buds. But I personally think it’s a delightful concoction as the tangy forest berries really add to the sweet fizzy taste of the champagne. Plus it gives that deep red colour which is perfect for Halloween. I find Rich Veuve Clicquot is a lot sweeter, more like a dessert wine than the original Veuve Clicquot.
Don’t Like Champagne?
If you like something a little less bubbly and a little more creamy don’t forget to check out my Chocolate Pumpkin Spice martinis too! They are definitely one to have after dinner for dessert style drinks.
