Unless you're a brain-guzzling zombie or sweet-guzzling trick or treater, Halloween most likely won't conjure up images of fine dining. But London Town has hunted down the most fangtastic food and drink events celebrating All Hallows this year.

The Hansom Bar, St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

Especially for Halloween, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel has created The Devilishly Hansom cocktail.

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Euston Road, London, NW1 2AR

Especially for Halloween, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel has created 'The Devilishly Hansom' cocktail, available from 28th October until 3rd November in the gothic surroundings of the stylish Hansom Bar. Set against a backdrop of magnificent over arching architecture, the fruit-infused concoction comes with a hair-raising, spicy kick. Named after the hotel's signature bar, the cocktail combines strawberry puree, chilli-infused Mezcal and Grenadine topped with zesty lime juice. It's perfectly garnished with miniature horns made from red chillies for that Devilish barside appeal.

In addition, the four cocktails on the Day of The Dead menu are available for two weeks - from Monday 21st October until Sunday 3rd November 2019. Made with tequila, The Blood of Mayahuel is mixed with lime juice, sugar syrup and soda, Strawberry and Orange Margarita with lemon and orange and El Diablo with ginger beer while Corpse Revivor combines gin and vermouth with Cointreau, lemon and a drop of Absinthe. It's enough to bring the dear departed back from the dead.
