While it’s hard to say just what Halloween will be like this year thanks to pandemic concerns, Applebee’s has found a way to make sure you celebrate all month long.

Now through Oct. 31, the restaurant chain is serving up a scary good deal — Halloween-themed drinks served in their signature Mucho-sized glasses for just $5! You’ll find two $5 spooky sips on the menu: the Tipsy Zombie and Dracula’s Juice.

The Tipsy Zombie is a tropical blue cocktail made with Bacardi Superior, a float of Midori and topped with a gummy brain. If you’d never had Midori, it is a sweet, bright green-colored, muskmelon-flavored liqueur. When you add it to your drink, it may change the color.

Or, you can instead sink your teeth into Dracula’s Juice. Part margarita and part daiquiri, the frozen libation is made with Patrón Tequila, Bacardi Superior, wildberry and margarita mix.

The Spooky Sips are available in the restaurant or for To-Go at participating locations.

If you want something to eat with your spooky cocktails, Applebee’s is also offering a dozen Double Crunch Shrimp for $1 when you add them to a steak entrée for a limited time.

If you’re still not up for heading to a restaurant yet or don’t have an Applebee’s near you, there are tons of spooky Halloween drinks you can make right at home instead.

If you like pumpkin flavors, this Malibu Pumpkin Colada has Malibu Original, pineapple juice, coconut cream, lime juice and pumpkin puree or juice. Not a fan of pumpkin? Try this “Witch, Please” cocktail instead, which has vodka, matcha, pineapple juice, lime juice and agave syrup.

Or, if you want something even fancier, check out this Ghouls Night In cocktail that’s made with Pinot Grigio, chocolate vodka, hazelnut liqueur, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce and chopped peanuts.

Are you excited for Halloween?
