  1. Pina Ghouladas via DIY Network: Scare up the fun by adding a cute black and white (or orange) straw with a classic Pina Colada cocktail.
  2. Vampire Kiss via DIY Network: Seeing as how Twilight author Stephanie Meyer has released a gender-swapping tenth anniversary copy of her "Twilight" (aka "Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined"), we thought it was only appropriate to include at least one vampire drink reference. The DIY Networks Vampire Kiss was the perfect answer. Plus, it sounds like the perfect weather-swapping inspired drink from the original Twilights dark, grey and rainy setting with it's tropical flavors of mango vodka, coconut rum, sweet and sour and grenadine.  
  3. The Raven via DIY Network: A true Northwest Halloween inspired cocktail, The Raven features our favorite flavor - coffee.  
  4. Vampires Hemoglobin via Huffington Post: Champs makes everything better - even your Halloween cocktails! This hauntingly beautiful drink mixes together St-Germain liqueur, acai berry juice, vodka, lime juice, and champagne, while rimming the glasses with black sugar ups the glam factor.
