For those who have finally grown too old for trick-or-treating, Halloween-themed drinks and cocktails with scary names are the next best thing.
Whether cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages are your poison, here's what you can sip on to get into the holiday spirit.
'This Is Halloween!' and 'Coco Skellington'
This is Halloween. This is another one of our hand crafted custom potions. It is Halloween in a glass. We believe it stimulates the spirit, while it washes your palate with the flavors of the season like pumpkin, spiced cider, apple, ginger and cinnamon. #thisishalloween #beatlehouse #beetlehousenyc #mixology #halloweencocktails

With a color that lives up to its name, the Bloody Knuckle has become this Astoria's bar Halloween specialty. It's made of gin, Aperol and orange twist garnishes.
'Back from the Dead' Collection
Where: DavidsTea, various locations
Cost: $20 for a box with three Halloween teas
Being underage or not drinking doesn't mean you should miss out on some scary brew this season. With names like "Swampwater" and "Stormy Night," DavidsTea's seasonal collection is as spooky gets.
'Green Giant' and 'Tiger Lily'
Where: Clover Club, 210 Smith St., Cobble Hill
This go-to Cobble Hill bar offers a regular menu of drinks with spooky names. The Black Cat (gin, Mezcal, Amontillado sherry) and the Tiger Lilly (tequila, mezcal and coriander) are perennial favorites.
