In addition to co-creating one of the most beloved film franchises of all time in Ghostbusters, fan of the paranormal Dan Aykroyd is committed to being in the spirits business: he has a pretty good side hustle as the founder of the award-winning vodka brand Crystal Head. 

And for his return Friday as Dr. Ray Stanz in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, his company has come up with some spooky cocktails to help you celebrate.  

Afterlife also and pays tribute to Dan’s Ghostbusters co-creator and star Harold Ramis, who died in 2014: Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace play his character Egon Spengler’s grandkids, who find themselves getting into the family business when their town gets haunted.

The film will see Akyroyd reuniting with Bill Murray‘s Dr. Peter Venkman and Ernie Hudson‘s Winston Zeddemore, along with original cast members Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts
