Halloween is just around the corner, and we want to show you just how cheap and easy it can be to gather some friends and celebrate. There's no elaborate menu, hours in the kitchen, or fancy cocktails required. All you need is an easy-yet-impressive boozy beverage paired with a festive sweet treat. Think of this as your itty-bitty party plan!

Our Formula: Boozy Beverage + A Sweet Treat

Here is proof once and for all that hosting a Halloween get-together (or truly, any type of get together!) doesn't have to be a production or cost a ton of money. This simple, two-part approach, with a boozy beverage paired with a little something sweet, is all you really need.

No matter what your party style, who you're hosting, or your schedule, there is a combo that's just right for you.

A Halloween Menu for Pumpkin Spice Lovers

If you're way more into it being pumpkin spice season than Halloween, this is the low-key party plan for you. It's easy enough to pull off with a sweet and tangy three-ingredient Gold Rush cocktail and a batch of gooey pumpkin spice Rice Krispies treats.
