I’d say that Halloween is just around the corner, but the reality is that it’s already here… just one more sleep (or not, if you’re seeing this on Halloween day). Everyone knows that Halloween parties are really just a booze-fest. We keep it real here. 😉
Thankfully, the LCBO has stoked up on quite the variety of ‘Spooky Delights’ just in time for Halloween. Forget just pulling out your average stock. Get your bar cart lookin’ spookier than even with any of these — along with some of our favs that are just bound to help your guests have a great time.
PSA: The LCBO now delivers via the Foodora app so if you’re leaving the stock-up to the last minute, forget hulling bottles around down and get on the app and have them delivered… to your HOUSE, backyard, you name it… You can thank us later. 🙂

When drinking rum, most picture themselves sun bathing on the sands of a hot beach destination. Piña Coladas, Mojitos, and Mai Tais. But in reality is there is so much more to Rum. I’m personally a big fan of a good dark and stormy — or even swap out the dark rum for some white rum and I’m good with that too. Bacardi is really working to change that reputation, and this limited-edition “haunted” bottle does exactly that. It will (quite literally) light up your Halloween party. The bottle’s black and orange jack-o-lantern label is glow in the dark, making it just about the greatest booze to ever light up your bar cart for Halloween. 😉Buy Now | $28.25
No no, not the kind that got you sick back in your college days. This is the good stuff. It might not be spooky, but there are a tone of great spook’ified cocktail concoctions that the Aguamiel tequila would be the perfect fit for. This Canadian owned brand was established in June 2018. Their master tequillier Augustin Sanchez Rodriguez sources 100% Blue Agave from Jalisco, Mexico to make this tequila — so ya, it’s authentic too. It’s subtly sweet with notes of pepper, vanilla, earth and lemongrass. The finish is long, warming and spicy. 😉Buy Now | $60.20
Happy Halloween, and as always, please drink responsibly. Look for a few more options, check out this full Halloween Collection available at the LCBO.
