23 Spooky Halloween Tequila Cocktails

With its distinct flavor and versatility, tequila adds a nice twist to any cocktail.

Whether you’re hosting a haunted house party or enjoying a quiet night in, these festive Halloween tequila drinks will get you in the spirit.

There are margaritas in every color, bloody, smoking cocktails, and more.

Simply put, there’s something for everyone.

So, let’s explore some of the most delicious tequila cocktails, shall we?

1. The Upside-Down Cocktail

Break out this shimmering, ghoulish cocktail for Halloween.

(Or a Stranger Things binge-watching session!) It’s the perfect choice for both. 

It’s tart and fruity and resembles a tall glass of Demogorgon blood.

That may not be the most appetizing description, but it’s accurate. And hey, at least it’s pretty Demogorgon blood! 

(Spoiler alert: Yes, you can pair these with a stack of Eggos for maximum ST effect.) 

2. Halloween Margarita

This gloriously green margarita recipe is bright and citrusy, with plenty of aesthetic appeal.

It tastes like your typical top-shelf margarita but looks a lot cooler. 

And that black lava salt? Feel free to use it on everything. It makes any cocktail look amazing.

3. Blackberry El Diablo 

In the mood for a boozy, berry-licious cocktail? Check out this recipe for the blackberry El Diablo.

Its devilish name and spiced, fruity flavor make it an easy favorite at any party. 

Just don’t wait until the last minute to whip it up. Remember, making the blackberry syrup takes some time.

Prepare it about an hour before your Halloween celebrations for the best results. 

4. Witches Brew Halloween Cocktail

I adore this simple, 10-minute drink even without the smoking rosemary.

Admittedly, that little garnish does make it about a thousand times cooler, though. 

Still, I love it because of its wonderful, complex flavor. It features a pomegranate and blood orange base that’s impossible to resist.

Toss in a little cinnamon for depth and spice, and WOW. 

Its spooky appearance makes it perfect for Halloween. But I whip these drinks up regularly throughout the year.

5. Draco Agave

No, that’s not a tall glass of blood on ice.

Instead, it’s the Draco Agave, a spicy, somewhat bitter, tangy drink with loads of grapefruit flavor. 

Everything about it screams Halloween from the unique taste to its eerie appearance, to even its name!

Make a tray of these if you really want to impress your guests. 

6. Frankenstein Halloween Margarita

Okay, I’ll tell you this right now: there are a lot of Mexican margaritas on this list.

Margaritas are bound to pop up pretty often when making a list of tequila drinks.

So this one is only the second of many.

It tastes similar to the Halloween margarita above. They’re both bright, tangy, and full of classic margarita goodness. 

The biggest difference between them? This one looks like Frankenstein’s monster!

Yeah, yeah. That’s all in the decorative aspects, I know. Still, when planning for Halloween, it makes a difference! 

7. Black Margarita 

The black margarita is, well, a black margarita. It’s not just any black margarita, either.

This drink is as dark as the grim reaper’s soul. (Thanks to an activated charcoal capsule.)

In all other respects, it’s your traditional lime and tequila margarita. 

8. Grave Digger Halloween Cocktail

These fun and festive mixed drinks taste as good as they look.

They’re tart and tangy, with hints of melon and citrus in every sip. 

The drink’s consistency is also really neat. You finely chop Jell-O and add it to each glass.

The pieces are small enough to suck through a straw and add just the right amount of texture. 

It’s a little spooky and a ton of fun. It’s the adult version of blindly sticking your hand in a bowl of “eyeballs” at a party. 

9. Skinny Orange Halloween Margarita

This five-ingredient margarita is seriously citrusy with loads of orange and lime juice.

It has a light, refreshing taste and a fraction of the calories of other margaritas. 

If it doesn’t look creepy enough, add some dry ice to make it smoke. You won’t have to stick strictly to Halloween, either.

These drinks make an excellent choice for any occasion. 

10. The Black Widow Smash

The black widow smash is your typical blackberry smash with a darker name.

It’s rich, sweetly tart, and looks fantastic. If that gorgeous purple-black color doesn’t appeal to you, nothing will. 

11. Zombie Brain Margarita Jell-O Shots

I can’t lie, these Halloween jello shots look totally gruesome. Of course, that’s the point!

Fortunately, they taste much better than they look. 

If you like lime Jell-O and sour gummy worms, you’ll love them.

And I solemnly swear that no zombies were harmed while making these shots. 

12. Monster Mash Margaritas

It’s never been as easy to do the mash, the monster mash, as it is with these tasty drinks.

These light and refreshing blood orange-based margaritas are awesome. 

They taste so good that everyone will want to do the monster mash.

You can even make this into a tasty Halloween punch with floating eyes!

13. Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice! BEETLEJUICE! 

It doesn’t look like typing his name three times summons him, but that’s okay.

We have this delicious drink to soothe our disappointment. 

It’s a sweet blackberry and coconut drink that any ghost with the most would appreciate.

Just don’t forget the basil leaves. It might not seem like it, but they make all the difference.

14. Smoking Blackberry Sage Margarita

Do you know how people say you can burn sage to eliminate evil spirits?

Well, this smoking cocktail probably isn’t what they had in mind. That’s a shame, really. This way is much more fun. 

It’s another delectable blackberry-based drink. (This one with sage instead of rosemary.)

It’s a tangy, fruity treat that’s always a hit, even without all the showy extras. 

15. Jack-O’-Lantern Margarita

This is a simple orange juice margarita. If you want to turn it into a Jack-o-lantern, you’ll do that with the right glass.

(Or any glass and a black marker.) See, Halloween cocktails don’t have to be hard!

16. Skeletons in Your Closet Cocktail

What is it with glowing green drinks and Halloween?

I think it’s because that bright green color looks like something from a witch’s cauldron. 

Whatever the reason, there’s no denying that green drinks are all the rage for Halloween.

This simple, four-ingredient cocktail takes full advantage of that fact. 

It’s a delightfully tropical mix of pineapple juice, mango juice, Tequila, and blue Curacao. It looks awesome and tastes even better. 

You can substitute tropical schnapps for blue Curacao in a pinch. If you do that, you may have to add some green food coloring. 

17. Creepy Crawler Cocktail

This bright yellow, citrusy drink is actually perfect for summer.

It’s like spiked lemonade with a little Sprite and OJ mixed in for good measure. 

So, why is it on a list of Halloween tequila drinks? Because of the spiders, of course!

Dropping in a few plastic spiders is all it takes to turn this cocktail from summer to fall. 

Seriously, though, it’s ridiculously refreshing in the warmer months. So be sure to bookmark this recipe for every season and occasion. 

As a side note, you can turn practically any cocktail into a Halloween cocktail the same way.

Plastic spiders and waxed vampire lips can go a long way. 

18. Vampire Venom Margarita

Don’t worry, that’s not blood and chunky flesh bits in a glass. It’s just a strawberry-heavy margarita with a spooky name.

It’s a fun drink with a sweet, smoky, and spicy flavor. 

19. Devil’s Margarita

Honestly, I have no idea how this drink got its name. It doesn’t look devilish to me at all.

Instead, it just looks lovely. Something like “pretty princess cocktail” would suit it better. 

Whatever the case, it’s a gorgeous drink. (Add a little edible glitter to make it even prettier.)

Plus, it tastes great, too. It balances perfectly on the sweet-tart line and is a real hit with everyone. 

20. Sour Frankenstein Halloween Cocktail

This crisp, invigorating drink is really just a cucumber margarita.

However, with some fake (and totally edible) blood, it becomes 100% Halloween-themed. 

Just be sure to warn your guests. That red corn syrup mixture can be more than a little messy. 

21. The Soul Taker

There’s nothing exciting about the way this drink looks.

In fact, the only thing moderately Halloween about it is its name. 

Even so, it’s one heck of a strong drink. It’s so strong, it’ll have you singing show tunes after a single glass.

If that’s not the darkest sorcery, then I don’t know what is. 

22. Midnight Margarita

Here’s another fun and easy way to make a black margarita.

And yes, despite its color, that’s exactly what it tastes like, a classic margarita. It just looks a little more festive. 

23. Potion de Muerto Halloween Cocktail 

This easy-to-make, three-ingredient drink looks like the zombie virus in a glass.

It’s totally eerie and will make people second-guess whether or not they should drink it. 

In reality, it’s perfectly safe. It’s a simple mix of tequila, orange and lemon juices, agave, beet juice, and orange bitters. 

It looks wonderfully exciting and has an interesting, hard-to-describe taste to match.

Just try it for yourself. You might be surprised by how much you like it.
