Luckily for us, even if it's not cold and windy, there are still plenty of spooky libations to celebrate the month's favorite holiday — Halloween.
Here are six fun and festive cocktails to get your spookiest sips on in Miami:
Airmail955 Alton Rd., Miami Beach
Earlier this month, Airmail — the bar inside the Alton Food Hall — introduced its new fall menu. Now, in the spirit of Halloween, the bar is highlighting its new “Cinn-Ister” rum punch. Try it on Saturday, October 29 from 2-9 p.m., when guests are invited to the food hall's Spooky & Foodie Family Fun event where they’ll be serving up plenty of Halloween-themed (non-alcoholic) treats including the “Vampire Fangs” housemade lemonade with strawberry puree and “Bubbly Cauldron” with cucumber, mint, lime, ginger, and soda water. The fall cocktails are available through Halloween.
Le Chick310 NW 24th St., Miami
Wynwood’s Le Chick is featuring the new Halloween-themed libation, the "Cheshire Colada.” A blend of Bacardi 8, Bacardi coconut, pumpkin spice liqueur, and Chinola passion fruit liqueur, the drink is shaken and served over ice. Find it throughout the rest of the month and on the night of its Le Chick in Wonderland Halloween party taking place Saturday, October 29 when you can pair it with Le Chick's limited-time “Spooky Bun” burger — an eight-ounce patty seasoned with pumpkin spice salt and topped with red onion aioli, grilled sweet peppers, grilled onions, smoked cheese sauce, and a red pepper marmalade.
Moxy South Beach915 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
The Moxy South Beach’s Serena and Bar Moxy will be paying homage to its Mexican theme with a Dia de los Muertos weekend celebration. On Saturday, October 29 both bars will be decorated with candlelit altars adorned with tequila bottles and authentic decor as offerings to the deceased. To celebrate, head over for the Day of the Dead themed cocktail, the “Muerte Negra Margarita,” a thrilling combination of tequila, agave, lime, and activated charcoal served with a spicy salt rim.
Playa915 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach
Located on Lincoln Road, Playa presents the perfect spot to people watch all those fabulous costumes while imbibing a cocktail or two. And why not make it a seasonal offering to put you in the spirit of Halloween? Even if you’re not trick or treating, the bar’s “Cognac O’ Lantern” should do the trick. It's one of several limited-time cocktails available at the bar, prepared with cognac, brandy-based orange liqueur, orange juice, ginger ale, and garnished with a lime twist and orange wheel.
Salvaje101 NE 34th St., Miami
Hyde Midtown’s rooftop venue will soon be transforming into “SalvaHell” next weekend, its rendition of a moonlit dreamscape inspired by Michael Jackson’s iconic "Thriller" music video. The theme pays tribute to the classic hit with performances every time bottle service is ordered, but guests can also enjoy the festivities and animated, Insta-worthy decor at the bar where they’ll be plenty of whimsical Halloween cocktails and desserts like the famous “Zombie” cocktail served in skull tiki mug. Salvaje’s Halloween-themed weekend will also launch the brand’s new drag brunch and dinner program, with festive performances by Morphine Love taking place all day Saturday and Sunday.
Shoma Bazaar9420 NW 41st St., Doral
