Day of the Dead
This spooky-looking drink would be just the thing for any vampires that come to visit. You can garnish it with a sprig of rosemary, which you can light carefully with a match to cause it to smoke mysteriously. Another creepy bonus: pomegranate is known as the fruit of the dead in Greek mythology.

Directions: Muddle 3 cloves with several pomegranate seeds. Shake all ingredients and double strain into a tall glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig or berries on a toothpick.
Bobbing for Apples
