We have recipes for wickedly good cocktails, mocktails and even appetizers that will impress your guests and deem your Halloween gathering the best one of the year! We even included a spooky activitiy to add an extra flare. The catch is that not only can you make these at home, but you can also try these at our upcoming Fernbank After Dark: Boos and Booze, Friday, October 13 from 7 – 11 p.m.
Boo-berry Old Fashioned
*Mocktail: Substitute the whiskey with a black tea bag of your choice.
*If you are making the mocktail version of the Boo-berry Old Fashioned but want similar effects of the buzz, you can add in a couple drops of Kava extract, which can be found at your local Sprouts. This herb mimics the boozy effects but without the hangover or the intoxication. Please visit here to learn more about Kava. This mocktail recipe will not be available at Fernbank After Dark but is a fun substitute if you want to make this at home without alcohol.

Now that you are done preparing your potions and spooky spinach dip, it is time for you to dig up a ghoulish activity for your guests to enjoy. The activity below will have your guests calling you a mad scientist!
