The trick-or-treaters are gone. The porch lights are off. You have your movies queued up, your comfy clothes on, jack-o’-lanterns lit. What’s missing? Your glass filled with something bewitching, of course. It’s the easiest part of the whole night. Sure, you could always go with simple sips such as a pumpkin ale, a spiced wine or a hard cider. But if you want a treat with a trick, we revisited some ingenious concoctions from autumns past. We dusted these off and found they still make perfect for pairing with tales from the crypts of Hollywood. Like any self-respecting zombie, no good drink recipe is ever dead. So dig out your shiny black chalice — or hollow out a fresh small pumpkin — and stir things up before you turn out the lights. Take your pick, dearies. And a word of advice: If you hear a loud crash in the garage, don’t go check it out alone. At least bring your glass with you.
