We should point out that a lot of people decide to whip up horror-inspired cocktails at their Halloween parties, to really get in the spirit of the season. You may want to ask the host what cocktails they’re planning to make ahead of time, so you can take along a wine that’ll help them throw a brilliant bash!
Try a sinister take on Spain’s beloved traditional drink, you just can’t make a Blood Red Sangria. without a strong, full bodied red wine. You could opt for a Burgundy like the Clos Saint Denis 1996 here, which retails at £528. A Bordeaux like the Chateau Ausone 1988, which you can buy for £336, also works for Halloween red wine cocktails.
For fancier parties, you host may opt for sparkling wine-based creations, such as Pomegranate Champagne cocktails. With this kind of drink, it depends on the flavour profile. For traditional Champagne cocktails, choose a white Champagne, such as the Krug 1988 (£336). For drinks with fruiter profiles, rose Champagnes like the Ruinart Brut Rose (just £55 from us) are far more appropriate gifts.
