Easy Red Sangria
This easy-to-make beverage is sure to please any crowd—it's made with brandy, orange and apple slices, orange juice, club soda, and of course red wine. Choose a dry wine such as a red Zinfandel and make sure to chill the sangria before serving for the ultimate sip.
Black vodka provides the spooky color in this grown-up twist on a Shirley Temple, and black-cherry soda gives this drink its classic sweet flavor. Top it off with what else but a maraschino cherry garnish.
The usual gin and tonic gets brushed by a peacock's teal plume thanks to blue Curacao, a bitter-orange liqueur, and green Chartreuse, a French herbal liqueur.
Guests will howl for this creative and super-festive punch. Create the glowing moon by freezing orange juice and water in a bowl, then release it and float it in a mixture of concord-grape juice, ginger soda, seltzer, and fresh lime juice. Spike grown-up ghouls' glasses with an ounce (or two) of vodka.
