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!
