Halloween Cocktail Time

Enjoy grownup treats—cocktails from Casamigos Casa Candy and Dia De Los Muertos to a roundup of chilling and warming drinks
Casa Candy Cocktail

Casamigos Tequila

The Halloween candy supply “for the trick-or-treaters” includes many of our favorite sweets, of course, but something we’ve got over the kids is cocktails! If you’re looking to add a little pizazz to the spooky season, the mixologists with Casamigos Tequila have crafted some cocktails to help you get into the holiday spirit.

Nothing screams “Halloween” like a nice trick-or-treat, and the Casa Candy is a treat that looks as good as it tastes. The Dia De Los Muertos combines Casamigos Blanco Tequila and Mezcal with blood orange and lime juice to make a smoky celebration for Day of the Dead.
