Halloween is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about the perfect drink for your spooky soirée. But what if you or your guests follow a vegan diet?
Fear not, because there are plenty of delicious and creative vegan Halloween cocktails out there that will satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
Whether you're hosting a costume party or just looking for a festive drink to enjoy on your own, there are plenty of options to choose from.
From pumpkin spice to apple cider, and everything in between, there are plenty of seasonal flavors to incorporate into your drink.
But what makes a cocktail vegan, you might ask? Simply put, a vegan cocktail is one that doesn't contain any animal products or byproducts. This means no dairy, honey, or eggs.
Instead, vegan cocktails rely on creative substitutions such as plant-based milks, agave nectar, and aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) to achieve the same creamy or foamy texture as traditional cocktails.
So, if you're looking to impress your guests with a spooky and satisfying drink that's also vegan-friendly, keep reading for some of the best Halloween cocktail recipes out there.
