    These drinks are great ideas for a Halloween party! Wondered if I would be able to make them ahead of time? Maybe by the pitcher? Thoughts? Thanks!

    • Nathan Longley says

      You can mix everything except the Sprite/7-up. I would wait to add the sprite until ready to be served.
      Hope you enjoy!

  3. Brook Galey says

    What coconut cream did you use? Sweetened or not?

    • Nathan Longley says

      I am pretty sure we used Coco Lopez or Coco Reàl, which are both sweetened. Hope you love it!

    These were a HUGE hit! Made for a family Halloween theme dinner. Surprised how delicious and not overly sweet they were. I used regular Vodka but other wise followed the recipe. Don’t leave out the ghost peeps! I used scissors to cut a slit in the bottom and sat them on the glass rim Boooootiful!

    • Nathan Longley says

      So happy you liked them!

    How did you make the ghost garnish?

    • Nathan Longley says

      They are ghost peeps. You can get them from amazon here: Ghost Peeps

    How did you get the ghost to stand up? Did you use a skewer stick or ?

    • Nathan Longley says

      I think we just had the peep sitting on the ice leaning a little against the side of the glass. If that does not work for you, you could use a skewer so it stays up if you move your glass around. Hope you enjoy!
