5 Ways to Turn Halloween into Hallowine
If you think Halloween is just for kids, think again. We’re all about starting new traditions – bonus points if they include wine! Here are 5 foolproof ways to take your celebration from Halloween to Hallowine.
1. Serve fall wine cocktails in spooky glassware.
From mulled wine to sparkling sangria, we’re sharing all the seasonal cocktail recipes. We’ve even rounded up our favorite spooky season cocktails to add a bit of fright to your night!
As for glassware, we love these moody cocktail glasses from West Elm. They also have stemless wine glasses that are begging to be filled with fall sangria.
2. Pair your wines with Halloween classics or scary movies
Cue up a movie marathon or cult classic like Hocus Pocus! If you’re into horror movies, we’ve actually put an entire wine pairing guide together for you. Surprise, surprise. We always come through! Don’t forget to your yourself a glass of emotional support wine to get you through the scary scenes.
3. Chill your wines in a pumpkin
Yep, you read that right. Turn your carved pumpkin into a wine chiller! Just cut the top off, remove the insides, add ice, and pop your favorite wines inside.
4. Tell spooky wine stories.
Haunted wineries. Spooky vineyards. That one time you accidentally spilled your Cab Sauv on a brand new white shirt. *shudder* As the night gets later and later, take turns going around the circle and telling ghost stories! We’ll get you started with these 5 tales from beyond the vineyard.
5. Put together a fall charcuterie board to pair with your wine.
Every get together needs a grazing board! Whether you add a few fall touches with pumpkins or go all out spooky, your charcuterie board is the perfect way to get creative this Hallowine. We love this Hocus Pocus charcuterie inspo!
