Never mind Trick or Treat, just treat yourself for Halloween. Whether you’re looking for a solid base for some creepy cocktails or an easy-drinking brew that gets the party started, Culted has you covered with our Halloween drinks guide.

Now that the weather is getting colder, unwinding with the warmth of a good bourbon whiskey is definitely up there with one of the better decisions you can make. Aged in new oak barrels, this whiskey contains spicy notes of vanilla and barrel char that will leave you licking your lips for more.

With a long finish that is the product of its corn, rye and barley malt, you’ll be in good stead for a spectacular spooky season. Head to the Buffalo Trace website to find out more and to get your hands on a bottle, or even better head down to the brand’s London distillery in Covent Garden which opens next year.

MOTH’s mega cocktails in a can

They might be pocket-sized, but don’t let that fool you. MOTH has taken the drinks industry by storm with its bar-quality cocktails in a can. Everyone likes a cocktail, but making them can be a long and drawn-out process, which, to be honest, nobody can be bothered to do at home, can they?  Whether you’re mental for Mojitos, nuts for Negroni, mad for Margaritas or gagging for an espresso ‘tini, MOTH has you covered in its small but mighty cans.

Get creative with CÎROC 

When you look past the 2016-era “CÎROC boy” bottleneck grabbing images that are emblazoned into your mind, a whole world of tasty drinks is opened up. Unlike most vodkas, which are made from grain, this boujee bad boy is distilled from fine French grapes. Whether you’re drinking it neat, with a mixer or making a peach bellini, CÎROC will have you sorted.

Serve up something chic with Veuve Clicquot 

When is a bottle of champers ever a bad idea? Veuve Clicquot needs no introduction – it’s clean, smooth and goes down a treat come rain or shine. Whether you’re setting the mood for a frightful night, or cheersing in the holiday season, getting stocked up with Veuve is one of the best things you can do.

Get cold and crisp with Camden Hells Lager 

Everyone loves a beer, and Camden is up there with the best. It’s refreshing, flavoursome and goes down well no matter the occasion. Whether you’re enjoying a freshly poured pint or at home, the outcome is the same – you’ll be left savouring every last hoppy and full-bodied sip. There’s nothing scarier than when the beer runs out, so make sure you’re stocked up.

Get in the Halloween spirit with Havana Club 

From Cuba to the world: If there’s one way to lift the party spirits, it’s with Havana Club rum. With its slightly sweet taste and hints of vanilla and cinnamon, this tantalising tipple is worth getting in. Being behind a number of collaborations with fashion brands and rappers from PLACES+FACES to Skepta, these guys know what makes a good party matter, regardless of whether you’re staying in or going out out

Get zesty with White Claw 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ll know White Claw is everywhere, and for good reason. With a range of flavours to choose from, including mango, black cherry and natural lime, these are light, refreshing and bursting with flavour. It’s zest and crisp and incredibly moreish, which is perfect for festivities, spooky or otherwise.
