Wines and spirits in the Philippines are perfect for any occasion, no matter how extravagant or simple they may be. When it comes to that, there are numerous themes to uphold for your beloved drinks; and in this particular case, there’s no better theme to follow than the very occasion that brings us the chills: All Hallow’s Eve.
All Hallow’s Eve or Halloween is one of those events – much like others – that comes annually. This occasion is never boring, especially since both kids and adults can celebrate it in their own way. For children, trick or treating is the way to go; but for the adults, extravagant costume parties surely are the top pick.
For those wanting to host these fun get-togethers, you could definitely try out serving drinks that are out-of-this-world and can leave your friends and guests quaking in fear. To help you out, here are some ideas for you to explore:
The presence of “blood” often makes most people feel nauseated, which is why it’s one of the scariest sites you could show your guests. Luckily for you, numerous wines and other spirits from the Philippines already come in a bloody color. However, if you’re thinking of kicking it up a notch, then you could certainly use another spooky agent: grenadine.
Grenadine is one element you could add to your drinks in order to get a playful flavor that you would often find in other alcoholic beverages. Plus, it could turn your drink into a vibrant red that mimics that color of blood. Feel free to add a generous amount of it in your punch bowl or juice mixtures. Though, be careful about your drinking becoming too sweet.
Another color that could easily give your guests a fright is black. After all, most people associate it to evil entities, dark spirits, and demons – meaning, you could utilize it to your adventage on All Hallow’s Eve.
Apart from black, other dark colors, such as purple, red (as already mentioned), and some hues of brown, could effortlessly give off a creepy vibe. These colors also fit a gothic theme, which you could choose as the signature look of your party to completely be unique from other soirees in the Philippines on Halloween.
In order to serve the perfect drinks at your party, be sure to choose your ingredients well. For black, you could add a bit of food coloring to your wines and spirits. Dark chocolate is another element you could utilize; you can place it as a garnish on your beverages or simply incorporate it into one of your dishes (e.g. red velvet cupcake). If you are looking for something fancier, you could use black sugar to coat the rim of the glasses you’d be handing over to your guests.
Apart from the color of your drinks, you could also concentrate your efforts on Halloween decorations. Now, this is not just about decorating your place with fake cobwebs, pumpkins, and spooky skeletons; it is also about choosing the right things to serve your drinks in.
For this, why not used some skull-shaped glasses? By doing so, you’ll be able to give your drinks an extra-scary factor on the outside. In fact, why not use this opportunity to utilize other decorations associated with Halloween? Things like blood bags, syringes, discarded mannequin limbs, and others of the sort will surely give you and your guests the fright of a lifetime with every sip you take.
Different Halloween Themes
The fun thing about throwing Halloween parties is that you could never run out of ideas to base its theme on. If you already threw a party last year, you can easily have another with a completely different look and feel from the past one.
You can draw inspiration from pop culture and media to see what theme you can have this year. You can consider these ones: zombie apocalypse, abandoned hospitals, and even monsters from the supernatural world.
When it comes to this, don’t hesitate to center your Halloween drinks on any of these themes. That way, you’ll be able to maximize your creativity and show them off to your guests.
Of course, Halloween-themed wines and spirits in the Philippines wouldn’t be complete without this aspect to consider. Things like dry ice, fake blood, talking pumpkins, and even life-sized zombies can make great ways to give your guests the fright of their night!
In fact, why not include some ‘live’ effects such as edible candy spiders, strawberry blood around the rim, and others of the sort? Your Halloween night is sure to get a lot of screams and jumps all throughout.
These things are sure to give your Halloween a boost in the ‘scary’ factor. If you’re feeling courageous to give any of these ideas a try, then feel free to do so. At the end of the day, you and your guests should have an amazing and spooktacular night!
