Old Hallows Eve has gone from a night of terror and ghosts to a bevy of spooky treats and death-defying culinary experiences. Halloween has turned into a night of adventure and unique experiences for all. Restaurants are spending the months before October concocting and creating tantalizing and terrifying drinks and meals! We are sharing some of our favorite ideas that you still have time to create for your Spooky Halloween Nights!!
A simple change for you to make, take some of your current menu items and add some spooky elements to them and rename for the special evening! Adding spiders, gummy worms and black sugar will give you an easy and inexpensive option.
Let’s talk some easy additions to your menu; there don’t have to be very many, printing up a special Spooky Menu for the evening or weekend will allow your patrons to get into the spine-chilling spirit! Some good options to include are:
Tomato Soup in test tubes
Chicken Wings are now bat wings
Blue and Black chips served with salsa
Add some specialty chocolate mousse with smashed cookies & worms for dirt & worms straight from the cemetery
Let’s take a look at some quick additions you can make to the bar; everyone loves a spooktacular libation! There are thousands you can try, or even create your own! It is easy to take a classic frozen margarita and layer the rim of the glass with black sugar or black salt or even layer with some red wine. We are loving the recipes over on Mix That Drink.
Decorating for the evening is as easy as pumpkin pie! A quick trip to your local Target or dollar store for some spiders, spider web, ghosts and orange & black napkins. Inexpensive and completes a Witchtastic time for everyone! Want to go a little further, scatter a few black lights around!
