Happy Halloween, Plus Spooky Cocktails

Lifestyle & Musings/ Recipes & Cocktails

Happy Halloween!  What are your plans?  I will be handing out candy while my husband takes Isabella trick-or-treating.  The boys will have friends over so it will be crazy {in a fun way} at our house tonight.  I haven’t dressed up for awhile but I’m thinking I may this year.  My favourite part of handing out candy is guessing what everyone is and listening to all of the jokes.  You can tell when the little ones have practiced that one joke all week!

I love this fashion editorial.. it’s festive but still elegant, and I always love a carousel.

Spooky Halloween Spirits
Just for grown-up goblins: Serve up a little black magic -- in the form of cocktails made with vodka that's as dark as night.
Ghost in the Graveyard

Serves 1
2 ounces black vodka
2 ounces creme de cacao or coffee-flavored liqueur
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
Pinch of finely grated nutmeg, for garnish
In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao, and set aside. Place a scoop of ice cream in a highball glass, and slowly pour vodka mixture over ice cream. Garnish with nutmeg; serve immediately
Screwed-Up Screwdriver
Serves 1
1/4 cup ice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 1/2 ounces black vodka
1 black licorice twist, for serving
Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.
Berry Scary Martini
Serves 1
1 cup ice
1 ounce black vodka
2 ounces cherry juice
Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish
Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
Wishing you a fun and safe Halloween!
