Oogie Boogie Halloween Cocktail

Oogie Boogie Halloween Cocktail RecipeOne of my favorite movies to watch to kick off the Halloween season is The Nightmare Before Christmas. What are some of your favorites?

I guess it really could go either way for both holidays, but I’m still partial to it for Halloween.

Jack and Sally are the best Halloween characters and really seemed to get popular as costume choices over the last few years too! And how can you not love cute little zero?!

I used a little bit of inspiration from him when mixing up this devilishly good Halloween cocktail recipe.

Apple flavors, a hint of sour, lemon-lime fizz, and candy worms…of course!

This Oogie Boogie Halloween cocktail is definitely a winner to serve to the guests at your next spooky gathering!

Ready to share the nightmare?

Oogie Boogie Halloween Cocktail RecipeHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • 1.25 ounces Green Apple Vodka
  • 1.25 ounces Sour Mix
  • Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Black Rimming Sugar
  • Candy Worms

Begin by rimming your martini glasses with black sugar. (I picked my black sugar up at World Market and those fun cocktail napkins too! How great are they?!)

First, flip your glass upside down and dip into a shallow bowl filled with water, or use a lemon or lime wedge to rim the edge of the glass.

Pour your rimming sugar onto a plate.

Next, add ice, vodka, and sour mix to a shaker.

Top with sprite and garnish with candy worms.

Oogie Boogie Halloween Cocktail RecipeI really love how great the cocktails look when the rimming sugar runs down inside the glasses too, creating a black sugary trail that adds to the creepy factor! So much fun and so little work to create it!

If you want to add a little bit more fun, serve your Oogie Boogie cocktails with dice!

Enjoy!
