      You’ve got your costume and you’ve got your parties; now you need the perfect Halloween libation. Here are a few concoctions to wet your fangs, suggested by some of the spookiest bartenders around.

      Tyler Smith, The Modern
      The drink: Bordello
      Word from the bartender: “The Bordello is definitely a Halloween drink—tequila, Alizé red, passion juice, and lime juice.”

      Steve Tegos, The Bourbon
      The drink: Stevie’s Halloween Chocolate Choo Choo
      Word from the bartender: “Kahlúa, Baileys, Frangelico, amaretto, and brown cacao shaken over ice.”¦It’s like Halloween: it’s fun, [and] it’s candy.”

      Justin Black, The Frog and Firkin
      The drink: Brain Hemorrhage
      Word from the bartender: “It’s like a China White, but you take grenadine and drop individual drops in the shooter glass. That trails down the side and mixes with the Baileys, and kind of looks like cloudy brains.”

      Lisa Philp, The Thirsty Duck
      The drink: Test Tube Baby
      Word from the bartender: “I can’t remember exactly what’s in it, but it looks like an abortion in a cup.”

      Jenn Chycoski, The Railway Club
      The drink: Bloody Bullfrog
      Word from the bartender: “It’s like a Kamikaze”¦an ounce of vodka, an ounce of triple sec, an ounce of lime juice, shaken and strained over ice, but with a splash of grenadine.”
