flavorful and cost effective thing to do is buy Torani flavored
syrup. It comes in like fifty flavors so you can mix and match to
make anything you want, ie. raspberry, strawberry,vanilla,
chocolate, shortcake, coffee, mint etc. Just use your imagination.
I usually add vodka, shaved ice and flavorings. My girlfriend likes
chocolate and cherry together. As well as the strawberry with the
shortcake flavor. You can't beat lemonade, vodka, and raspberry.
Try vodka, orange and vanilla, it's like an alcoholic dreamsicle.
But by just adding a little bit of this stuff you can make cream de
cacao, cream de menthe, kahlua, as well as any flavor vodka/ drink
you choose without having to flavor a whole bottle. Its also great
on ice cream or when making slushes, with or without alcohol.
As for the halloween/fall theme you could try apple and caramel
together, the dreamsicle is orange colored and would work. You could
freeze some of those plastic spiders in ice cubes and put it in the
drinks. My friends wife bought some of those halloween sprinkles
for cakes with pumpkins/ghosts shapes and lined the rims of glasses
with them like you would with salt. You could also do it with the
black and orange colored sugar they use on cakes.
I've also been to a party where they made a punch and floated
sherbet on top and added/ drizzled flavored syrup on top to make the
floating balls of sherbet look like bloodshot eyes, pumpkins, etc.
Maybe you could "fortify" some hot cider with neutral
spirits.Ultimately if you make the drinks strong enough, after the
third one, nobody will know what is in the drinks, nor will they
care. Good luck.
