01: The Camper’s Bonfire at In the Woods, Bar Rouge
Snick your way through toasted marshmallow and a raspberry (and, apparently, Khong Guan biscuit crumble), while navigating the hellishly-dressed denizens that’ll plague your dreams on the wild nights to come at the Swissotel bar. After all, those in Halloween get-up get through the door for free. Nabbing one of these cocktails will also earn you a pin which allows free entry on both nights into the playground of horror. Drink available 8 to 26 Oct. Into the Woods, 26 – 27 Oct (Sat-Sun). Event details here.
02: The Mad Eye Potion at Urbana Rooftop Bar
Urbana Rooftop Bar at Marriott Singapore Novena pulls no punches in the gore department with the Mad Eye Potion. We really appreciate the horrifying recreation of ripped-out eyeballs on a bed of bloody ice. Even the way the crimson Peychaud bitters courses through crushed ice looks veinous. Lime and ginger juice with a splash of rum make up this sight for sore eyes for those craving unadulterated gruesomeness. Available 26 – 31 Oct only.
03: The Countess at Amo
Horror takes on an Asian twist at Amo. Special cocktail The Countess delivers a strong kick with a Cointreau base finished with whisky that’s been infused with lapsang souchong (a type of black tea). Szechuan peppers put the spice in the pumpkin jam and take the drink one notch up. Be sure to wash down the vile juice with some of the island’s best pizzas. Drink available one night only. Boo-zy Halloween, 31st Oct (Wed).
04: The skull margaritas et al. at Lucha Loco, for Dia de los Muertos
True to its Mexican roots, Lucha Loco‘s got drinks crafted in the spirit of the Day of the Dead celebrations – which partially overlaps with Halloween. The Mexican remembrance festival actually falls on November 1, but is typically celebrated from 31 Oct – 2 Nov. Some cocktails are inherently spooky; the skull, after all, is the emblematic symbol of the occasion, and you could well find yourself drinking out of one. Join in on the celebrations (dress code: dead!) and you’ll get to bash a skull pinata in. Dia de los Muertos, 27 Oct (Sat). Event details here.
