The Rusty Nail may be the easiest Scotch-based cocktail to make this Halloween (watch mixologist Jim Meehan make one here), but it’s not the only Scotch drink that’s Halloween-appropriate. Here, six more smoky cocktails that are perfect for a spooky party.
1. Blood & Sand
This classic, rust-colored cocktail is fruity and only faintly smoky—it’s great for people who aren’t sure they like Scotch.
2. Smoky Apple
Not to be confused with the candy–sweet apple martini, this cocktail combines rich blended Scotch with apple schnapps and spicy Angostura bitters.
