…because it’s not quite Halloween until you watch the classic Hocus Pocus a dozen times. I mean, how many times can you really watch it when ABC Family plays it throughout October? 10? 50? 4,590 times? Yes to all of those numbers. Bette Middler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy provided some of the best quotes for millennials to date. Is that me? It’s probably you. Here’s our favorite quotes, gifs and scenes from Hocus Pocus:
1. Oh look. Another glorious morning. Makes me sick!

Candy Corn Milkshake
Because if we can get a non-alcoholic drink recipe for the kids out of the way, we’ll feel better about ourselves. Using a combo of vanilla ice cream, sherbet, whipped-cream, and yellow food coloring you’ll be like a hero in front of your kids and this thing tastes insane. Plus, if you have a buildup of mason jars you can finally put them to good use.

The Classic Witches Brew
Bring your undying love of bourbon to the Halloween forefront and calm your nerves when the doorbell rings tens-of-thousands of times. Use your favorite whiskey and brand of blood orange juice to give things a cool crisp Halloween-orange color. Super refreshing and the orange slice gives you the vitamin C you know you’ve been missing. Silver-lining.

The White Spider
Welcome back gin lovers! A little gin, orange liquor and sour mix can go a long way. Toss in a toy spider, you know, for sport. Or remove the spider and just start making these all year round.

The Smokin' Ghost
Because if it’s Halloween, of course, you need your cocktail to look like it’s pouring out thick smoke. Chambord, Blavod, club soda and a slew of other ingredients, this is one of our favorites as it tastes great and is an immediate ice-breaker. Pun sorta intended.

The Bride of Frankenstein
Keep it simple and classy. Plus, this will be one of the ladies favorites since it’s a combo punch of sparkling wine (or champagne), Chambord and pineapple juice. You finally have a reason to break out those champagne flutes that you’ve used once and put in the attic. Eh, keep the cobwebs on them, you know, for theme.

The Candy Corn Martini
Let’s face it, there’s only so much candy corn you can eat. What are we talking, like, 10-12 bags over the course of the Halloween season? Put them to good use by tossing them into your candy corn vodka which, yes, does exist. If you have a hard time finding it, just double up on the actual candy corn pieces. The point is getting drunk, right?

How insane does this look? Go out and buy some black vodka now along with some champagne and cranberry juice because this drink is definitely going to be a Halloween crowd pleaser. Plus, who doesn’t want a blood-like substance dripping down their glass (and eventually lips)?

If you’re looking for a little something with fizz, we recommend this pumpkin cocktail. Marry your love of Amaretto, OJ and lemon-lime soda (like Sprite or 7-Up). It’s orange and you’ve steered clear of actual pumpkin flavor. Victory.
