The jack-o-lantern has been carved. The candy aisle has been scoured for the perfect miniatures. The arachnophobic friend has been terrified with the strings of fake web and the plastic spiders. You've even made the rounds of the haunted houses in the Bottoms. The only thing left now is to man the door and treat the little ghosts and goblins as they meander door-to-door.

Well, maybe there's one more thing. There's still plenty of time left for a Halloween themed cocktail. Or two. There's certainly several to choose from.

Vodka fan? Then try the Skulled Holiday Cider cocktail – vodka meets one of fall's favorite flavors, apple cider. Made with Dan Akroyd's Crystal Head Vodka, the bottle is almost as much fun as the cocktail itself. It might be the perfect drink to sip while watching Ghostbusters.

If you're eyeing the candy apples, then it's the Chambord Candy Apple Martini for you. It's smooth and sweet, but beware – it will pack a deceptive punch. It's definitely an adults-only treat.

Do you have ghosts on your mind? Grab the vodka, and check out these ghost-themed Halloween vodka cocktails. Whether you prefer the Liquified Ghost, the Sour Ghost, or the Grey Ghost, they're scarily good.

Or maybe tequila is more your cup of tea – or cocktail, as the case may be. Never fear, there are definitely options for tequila cocktails for Halloween. Give the Calabaza-tini a try (calabaza is a type of squash that looks very similar to a pumpkin), or go haunting with a Tequila Ghost.

Of course, Halloween wouldn't be complete without a few gruesome Halloween shooter recipes. It's hard to decide whether the look or the name is worse, but if you're going for the gross-out factor, try Maggots or Writhing Maggots. And don't forget the Brain Hemorrhage, the cocktail that called the worst drink of the century.

Happy Halloween!
