    Creepy Cocktail - Guests will love this festively gloomy drink.

    Blood-Red Hot Chocolate - Those who want to sink their teeth into blood-red drinks will enjoy cups of hot chocolate, tinged scarlet with food coloring.

    Witches' Brew - Serve root-beer floats from a "steaming" cauldron made magical with the smoke of dry ice.

    Medusa Ice Face and Hands Punch - Although this festive punch won't turn guests to stone like the mythical Medusa, it's sure to leave them frozen in their tracks as they gaze into the bowl to find the serpent creature staring back at them.

    Eyeball Highballs - The perfect drink for monsters.

    Pina Ghoulada - A frothy drink is tempting enough, but one served in a redrimmed glass is particularly enticing to monsters who drink blood.

    Swamp Sips - The flavor of this potent brew is fruity with a hint of slime -- er, lime. Its murkiness comes from a generous helping of green fruit juice blend, available at the grocery store in the health- or energy-drinks section; tequila and a dash of lime juice give it a delectable edge. For the fuzzy, mold-colored rims, we used file powder, a Creole seasoning, but green tea powder will work just as well.
