Araya Jackson

When Halloween time comes around to this cat-infested city, the students of Georgia Southern go from dumb drunks, to even dumber drunks in costumes. It’s quite entertaining.

There is always something going on, whether it’s a house party or costume competitions at the bars. No matter what you do, you won’t be disappointed by being in Statesboro Halloween weekend.

So, if you’re hosting out of town guests, plan on having a pregame, or maybe just want to stay in and watch Hocus Pocus on repeat, you must keep the festivities going.

Below are 4 spooky cocktails sure to wow your guests and blur your memory. Keep in mind, these are recipes for normal people. Not Statesboro students with alcohol tolerance of a 300-pound man. Feel free to up the alcohol content.

Warning: You may start to see ghosts after putting down a few of these, but don’t sweat it. Maybe it’s real, maybe it’s not.
