With your Halloween fancy dress party now less than a week away, it's probably a good idea to do a quick drinks run tonight in order to make sure you've got everything you need.

If you're having a bash for adults, then it's a good idea to stock up on plenty of spirits (no pun intended) and mixers so that you have all the ingredients for some exciting cocktails.

WhattoDrink.com recommends buying black vodka and blackberry brandy to create a spooky-looking Black Martini, as well as orange juice and white vodka to create a Rotten Pumpkin.

You could also use the black vodka on top of cranberry juice for a devil's blood drink, the website suggests.

Meanwhile, if you're having a party for youngsters only, then you'll want to buy in plenty of squash and pop to quench their thirst.

This could also be presented in a scary fashion, with Haribo sweets floating in orangeade a great non-alcoholic 'cocktail' to thrill little ones.

Sorting out the beverages now will leave you with plenty of time to organise the food for your Halloween fancy dress party later in the week.
