Everyone expects a little something sweet on Halloween, but a sugary treat with booze is both a welcome and unexpected way to celebrate.
As a child, you probably relished your Halloween goodies – from gumballs to chocolate bars – with an unrivaled fervor. Well, unrivaled until now, because you're old enough to take inspiration from those sweets and make cocktails that taste like your old school trick-or-treat faves.
Here are five devilishly delish cocktails to enjoy:Black Gumball Cocktail
These bubblegum vodka drinks are way better than the real candy, because their flavor lasts until you're done with them – but what happens when you've got an empty glass? Why, mix up some more, of course. Pixie Stick Martini Cocktail
What was so great about flavored sugar in a straw anyway? Oh, right, you could mix it with just about any drink to give it a sour kick of flavor. Turns out, this tactic that you learned as a child applies to cocktails, too. Blow Pop Martini Cocktails
As a kid, few things are as enticing as a lollipop with a nugget of bubblegum hidden inside. As an adult, few things are as enticing as that flavor combo in a nice chilled martini glass. Chocolate Indulgence Martini
Here it is! Everyone's favorite wafer-based, break-away chocolate bar transformed into a creamy, boozy martini. It's also a visual treat as the glass is decorated with chocolate syrup and rimmed with crushed wafers. Beliebertini
You don't need to be a fan of the Biebs to enjoy this grape-tastic cocktail. It combines two Halloween faves – rock candy and Pop Rocks – with fruity vodka and lemonade for a refreshing, decidedly adult way to celebrate All Hallow's Eve.
