Throwing a last minute Halloween or October birthday party? Our chilling cocktail recipes will create a festive ambiance and invoke great times for all autumn occasions. These cocktail recipes are ideal treats for last minute Halloween and October birthday parties because they’re simple to make yet look very detailed.
Vampire Kiss Martini
Layer using the back of a spoon in this order: 1 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur, 1 oz. Ketel One Vodka and 1 oz. Korbel California Champagne like Korbel Brut Champagne in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with black licorice, candy corn or if you’re feeling extra playful, wax teeth.
Pour 3/4 oz. Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps into a rocks glass without ice. Float 2 Tbsp. of Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur atop the peach schnapps. For the final gory touch, drop 1 tsp. of grenadine through the Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur. This cocktail looks ghastly but tastes like peaches and cream!
Shake well: 1/2 oz. Tanqueray Rangpur, 1/2 oz. Martini® Rosso Vermouth, 1/2 oz. Martini® Extra Dry Vermouth, 1/2 oz. fresh orange juice, 2 tsp. Cointreau Liqueur and 1 tsp. orange bitters in a shaker ith ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a long, spiral orange twist.
Shake 4 oz. Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur with a Hint of Caramel and 2 oz. Stolichnaya Vanil Vodka in a shaker with ice. Add 1/2 oz. pumpkin liqueur to shaker and shake again. Strain into a chilled, cinnamon sugar or pumpkin spice rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and top with whipped cream, if you dare…
If you live in an area where it’s difficult to purchase liquor or champagne, or just want our help, our team and liquor and champagne delivery service can make your life easier so you can just enjoy the party.

Ricardo Gamarra brought the award-winning AsomBroso Tequilas into existence and for that, we’re happy. Enjoy our tasting notes for each label and our Autumn Margarita cocktail recipe using AsomBroso™ El Platino Tequila.
AsomBroso™ El Platino Tequila was awarded “Top Tequila” at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Fennel, licorice and anise fragrances stimulate the nose. Let this tequila aerate for agave, milk chocolate and olive brine scents. The peppery palate is both astringent and sweet finishing with a mellow toastiness. AsomBroso™ El Platino Tequila is also available in the AsomBroso™ Silver Carroll Shelby Commemorative Bottle - a blue collectible decanter sporting dual white racing stripes paying homage to Shelby cars - past to present.
AsomBroso™ La Rosa Tequila acquires its pink-hue from being aged three months in French Oak Bordeaux wine barrels. This reposado tequila has a sweet, floral nose but once aerated, has a vintage Bordeaux wine aroma. This tequila has a spicy palate with notes of pepper and finishes smoothly with a smooth vanilla flavor. Serve AsomBroso™ La Rosa Tequila neat or chilled in a snifter or in a premium martini.
AsomBroso™ Añejo Tequila is classified as an extra-aged tequila that’s aged at least 5 years in French Oak casks. Its nose is subtle with honey-like aromas that open up to a sweet palate of butter cream, light toffee and vanilla notes. AsomBroso™ Añejo Tequila is best served neat or chilled in a snifter.
AsomBroso™ 11 Year Old Añejo Tequila is the first and only 11 year old “vintage” tequila sold in the U.S. only in limited quantities. It’s an extra-special aged añejo matured for 11 years in 220 liter French Oak casks. It has an intensely sweet nose with hints of butterscotch and caramel opening up to honey, oak and a pinch of cinnamon. The palate is extremely smooth and sweet with vanilla and caramel notes, joined by an oakiness. Serve AsomBroso™ 11 Year Old Añejo Tequila neat or chilled in a snifter. If you’re looking for 50th Birthday Gift Ideas, this gold bottle of premium tequila is sure to impress.
Each AsomBroso™ Tequila label arrives in a decanter-style numbered bottle designed to resemble an 18th century European castle. Send AsomBroso™ Tequila as special thank you gifts, unique housewarming gifts, corporate gifts and much more!
AsomBroso Autumn Apple Margarita
Mix 1/4 tsp. sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and put on a small saucer - moisten the rim of a chilled cocktail glass and dip in sugar and cinnamon. Shake 2 oz. AsomBroso™ El Platino Tequila, 1 oz. Apple Juice, 1 oz. Sour Apple Schnapps, and 2 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix in a shaker with ice. Strain into the cocktail glass and serve with an apple slice.
