Food and Drink Ideas – Murder Mystery Halloween Party

Halloween is a popular time for those so inclined to don a creative costume and whip up some interesting drinks, and it’s always my favourite time of year to throw a party.

Hosting a murder mystery party is so much fun. It’s up to you just how far you jump into the theme. Once I ran out of time prepping a Murder on the Orient Express party and ended up serving White Russians in red beer pong cups – but if you have time to think about it, it can make a lovely touch. Here are some menu suggestions for a murder mystery party. As you can tell we like champagne here!

Classic country manor party like (Murder at Stackallen Castle): 


Champagne/ Martini/ Wine


French onion soup

Roast beef with honey-roast carrots, roast potatoes, creamed spinach, Yorkshire puddings

Creme brulee chocolate pots

Irish Writer’s Literary Supper (Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!)


Black Velvet (Champagne and Guinness cocktail)


Smoked salmon and cream cheese on soda bread
