Although Halloween festivities might look a little different this year, your cocktails shouldn’t. Casamigos has whipped up some seriously spooky drinks that are the perfect addition to any socially distant celebration.
The Smoky Halloween Colada is made with Casamigos Mezcal, adding a smoky flavor to this fruity drink and the Casa Teal Candy Martini looks as good as it tastes. Made with Casamigos Blanco Tequila, this drink calls for Blue Curacao which adds a blue tint to the cocktail! Even if you’re not planning on dressing up this year, you can still make your drinks festive.
