Dia De Los Muertos + Halloween Cocktails to Drink in Miami

Between the new horror films and dressing up in gory or scary-cute costumes, getting into the Halloween spirit never gets old.  But, the Magic City keeps the party going by celebrating the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, that begins October 31 and ends November 2.

Here are BOO –zy cocktails, from hotspots all around Miami, that pay homage to pumpkin-carving and prank-playing Halloween as well as to the sugary calaveras or skulls and the marigold-strewn ofrenda or altar traditions of Dia de los Muertos.
