No sudden movements. These cocktails sense fear.

1. Shaggy's Manhattan

All those scary monsters, they would’ve gotten away with it, had it not been for those meddling kids: Fred, Velma, Shaggy. This cocktail answers the question, “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” He’s behind bar, mixing signature drinks with the Shags.

4. Beefy Bloody Caesar

Tough day for Caesar. First, he’s assassinated, then he’s called “beefy.” That’s rude, Brutus. This one’s for the Halloween toga party that you’re throwing in Canada.
