Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Cocktail Academy knows their way around a great drink, but beyond that, they’re all about a crafted cocktail “experience.” In the last 7 years, they’ve become the go-to mixology and bartending firm for everyone from Nike to Netflix and pretty much every spirit’s brand worth their weight, catering an array of services from pop-up dinners, cocktail lessons, spirit tastings and most famously, the ultimate parties. We called on them for the perfect Halloween cocktails.
