Warm “Redrum” Cocktails
In Stephen King’s novel The Shining, the word “redrum” (murder spelled backwards) is used repeatedly as a plot device. This Halloween, make your own “redrum” by mixing up a batch of hot buttered rum and adding a few drops of red food coloring. The color might send chills up your spine, but the hot, spicy punch will warm you up again.

Witches Brew With Wormy Ice Cubes
Witches brew is must for Halloween parties. This brew utilizes gummy worms, dry ice and a cauldron as freaky finishing touches for your next haunted house. Leave out the vodka for a kid-friendly punchl.
