Blue cocktail with a black and white straw and a purple toy spider sitting on top

Spooky Gin and Tonic

My gin and tonic cocktail has its own Halloween costume this year. This cocktail is balanced with a touch of sweetness and citrus notes.

Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • If you are having friends and family over for a Halloween party, you can make this cocktail in a large pitcher and serve it in fun Halloween-themed glasses.
  • To make a large pitcher, simply add all of the ingredients except the ice and tonic water. Store in the refrigerator and serve over ice.
  • Have fun with decorating and garnishing cocktails. For this drink, I bought plastic spiders and threaded them on straws. The larger spider is also a plastic decoration.
  • Enjoy and always drink responsibly.
