Yolo Rum Halloween Cocktail Recipes

It's Spooky Season!

It’s Spooky Season! Get into the Halloween spirit by brewing up these witchy Yolo Rum Halloween cocktail recipes! We’ve conjured up twists on old classics and made a new signature drink, “The Yolo Pumpkin Smash,” created by Mixologist Frank Camel.

Yolo Rum Pumpkin Smash

The Pumpkin Smash is a frothy egg white cocktail with a fall taste that will wake the dead. Serve any of our other three festive horrors over a small piece of dry ice to cast a swirling fog over your drink- be sure to wait for the ice to melt completely or serve from a punch bowl as the dry ice will burn you if it comes into contact with skin. We’re being pretend gruesome here; we don’t need any actual blisters added to your zombie makeup.

These recipes are for single servings but can be adjusted for full party punch bowl size.
