Margaritas: they aren’t just for summer anymore! As a Texan, I am treated to my pick of these tart and tasty cocktails year-round, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
And they are definitely a crowd pleaser, especially at Halloweenie Roast. The two years I’ve served margaritas as my big batch cocktail – like my Beetlejuice Margarita – we’ve gone through them within the first two hours of the party!
So how do you make a margarita even better? Halloween-ify it, of course! Whether you’re planning your own Halloween party or just looking for a spooky cocktail to enjoy at the beach, these recipes will do the trick.

Nothing is spookier than a jet black cocktail, and I’m betting your Halloween party guests have never seen a black margarita.
Spice up your margarita and make it fall-friendly by using mezcal instead of tequila (more of a smoky flavor) and using cider instead of lime juice!
I might love these margaritas more for how they’re styled than anything else, but a recipe with blood orange is always a good one in my book!
Yes, fall’s favorite flavor has even found its way into margarita recipes. I’m not a big pumpkin spice fan, but I might actually be brave enough to try this recipe.
What Halloween-lovin’ adult doesn’t wish they could go back to the days of trick-or-treating? This Hallow-rita might be the next best thing.
Want to know a secret? Sometimes presentation is the way to make a cocktail spooky, like serving these morgue-a-ritas on a silver tray with coroner’s tools!
This margarita recipe is about as unconventional as they come. It doesn’t have a single ingredient found in a classic margarita (gin, pinot grigio), so I don’t even know you can call it a margarita…but it might be fun to try!
Here’s another recipe using tequila’s smoky cousin, mezcal, for a gorgeous fall-inspired margarita. I think cider margs are definitely on my to-try list now.
This one may not have a spooky name, but it’s made using a spooky looking fruit! Definitely a drink for the adventurous margarita drinker.
This margarita recipe combines the flavors of apple and lemon with elderflower liqueur. Drink too many, and you just might turn into its namesake.
And finally, no Halloween margarita list would be complete without this nod to the classic witch film, “Practical Magic”! Perfect for drinking at midnight…or on a beach somewhere. (In your black suit under your black umbrella, of course.)
