There is absolutely no better way to entertain guests and amp up the creepiness than by serving up pumpkin-flavored libations in a giant steaming pumpkin filled with dry ice. That said, the smoky effect will last depending on the amount of dry ice used.

The Weeping Woman {via muy bueno cookbook}

Inspired by the ancient Mexican folklore, “La Llorena” of a woman who lost her mind after her children died and lover left, this intoxicating cocktail of brandy and bitters features an eerie trail of wispy smoke made from dry ice that resembles her long, flowing gown.

If you’re into gross, this cocktail that resembles a bloody brain will unleash your inner mad scientist. Made with vodka, grenadine, Bailey’s Irish Cream and lime juice, the trick in amplifying the yuck is in the acidic lime juice that causes the Irish cream to curdle, creating those brain-like strands.

Vampire Cocktail {via self-proclaimed foodie}
