Halloween Cocktails with 1915 Bolthouse Farms Juices & Smoothies

Halloween is just as exciting when you’re all grown up because you get to trade candy treats for cocktail treats. For this Halloween, we’ve developed a couple of cocktails with 1915 Bolthouse Farms juices and smoothies, made with ingredients that are actually good for you! These recipes have just enough sweetness to satisfy that sweet tooth (mine gets really loud on October 31st :/), and are extremely easy to make for a weekend of festive entertaining. Have questions? Tweet us @GirlWalksIn2Bar. Happy Halloween!


The best part about these drinks is that you can easily swap out the designated spirit for your favorite go-to. Try the Draculini with vodka or gin. Make the Mango Monstah with tequila or whiskey. When the base ingredient is so pure and fresh, you really can’t go wrong with a little experimentation at home.


4 ounces 1915 Bolthouse Farms Beet Juice
1.5 ounces bourbon
1 ounce organic carrot and brown sugar simple syrup

Fill a martini shaker with ice and add each ingredient. Shake several seconds to mix, then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a spider and serve.

Organic Carrot Brown Sugar Simple Syrup Recipe
1 cup water
1 cup organic brown sugar
1 cup sliced organic carrots

Combine the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes. Occasionally stir the simple syrup to keep the brown sugar from burning on the bottom. Once the simmering is complete, remove the pot from the stove and allow the mixture to cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. 1915-mango_drink_bottle_horizontal

Mango Monstah
4 ounces 1915 Bolthouse Farms Mango Juice
1.5 ounces spiced rum
1 ounce peach brandy
½ ounce fresh lemon juice
Lemon wheel wedge

Fill a martini shaker with ice and add each ingredient. Shake several seconds to mix, then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel and serve.

Door Dash Delivers in More Ways Than One

Although we have been compensated for our time, all opinions, recipes, commentary, reviews, and photographs are our own. 


When I showed up to the party with a 750 ml of vodka you would have thought that I had dragged a dead body into the room. The room got so quiet you could hear ice melt.

I had been put in charge of making the Bloody Marys for the brunch portion of a July 4th celebration, which meant bringing the homemade mix and the vodka. Well…there were a few (dozen) more people in attendance than I anticipated and a 750 ml bottle would last about five seconds. Oops. I set my supplies down without making eye contact with anyone, then left to bring back the handles of vodka everyone expected me to bring in the first place.

This was my life before I discovered Door Dash. Or maybe I should say that they discovered me.

Last month we partnered up to help spread the word that Door Dash is delivering alcohol in the Los Angeles area. Yes, being exponentially excited about this should not make you feel embarrassed. We’re really happy too.

Even as serial entertainers, we sometimes miss the mark on planning the right quantities of beer, wine, and booze for our thirsty friends. Now, instead of leaving the middle of the party to replenish, we can have the goods delivered right to our door. Genius.

Of course, Door Dash isn’t just about delivering the hard stuff. They have teamed up with hundreds of LA restaurants to bring your favorite foods right to your door with just the click of a few buttons.

Try it for yourself and tell us what you think. Use our special code THISGIRL for any order over $20, and you’ll receive $7 off the total price.
