Despite getting rid of our plastic pumpkin candy baskets long ago, we can all admit that outgrowing our trusty pirate costume does not mean we outgrew Halloween.

This year, get your guests back in the spirit with these frightful cocktails from VOGA Italia Wine. But, just like Halloween candy, you may want to set limits on how many you can have before bedtime…but other than that...the rest of the evening is up to you.
