Festive Halloween recipes for shots and cocktails.

Halloween is a holiday that just screams for a party. Here are the recipes for over 20 Halloween-themed shots—with a little bit of preparation, you can add a little extra festivity to any party you host or attend. These utilitarian and tasty shooters have spooky names like Pumpkin Pie, Smashing Pumpkin, Screaming Green Monster, Ghostbuster, and Blood Bath. Halloween-themed shot glasses and party drinking dispensers will take your party to another level.

And why limit things to traditional shots? There are also recipes for Jello shots, which can easily be turned into Jello shot syringes.
