Spooktacular DIY Halloween Cocktails

When I was asked to create some spooktacular DIY Halloween cocktails that look like potions, I couldn’t wait to create them. The great thing about these is that all of them can be made as “Mocktails” or “Cocktails. All of these cocktails are a take on “Harry Potter” type potions. I have changed them up a bit, and they are amazing.
