Seriously. How much time do you spend helping your small people decide on a Halloween costume, create a Halloween costume, and then put the whole thing together on the many nights we celebrate this ‘special night’?
Not to mention the time we dedicate to decorating, buying candy (eating candy…wait…is that just me?) sorting candy and then keeping our kiddos from gorging. There is a whole bunch of KID to this holiday, but I swear you can throw some adult fun in as well.
These are the recipes so you can try any (or all) of these!
Ice The bottom of your mug/glass
A splash of Grenadine in the bottom
Sprite for the largest portion of your glass (eye it)
Top with your Favorite Flavored Vodka (add another quick splash of sprite if necessary)
Garnish with a syringe of grenadine
2 Large Plates
Red Syrup (I love Hersheys!)
Favorite Sweet Flavored Vodka (I like Pinnacle’s Whipped)
To do: Pour Red Syrup on one plate and red sugar on the other and dip your martini glass in the red syrup until the edge is covered (and dripping), then dip it in the sugar. Freeze (for about 20 minutes). Pour ice and martini into Martini shaker, shake and pour. Cheers!
Favorite Rum (I chose Parrot’s Bay)
Fill low cup with ice. Fill 1/2 of the cup with Cranberry and pineapple juice mixture. Splash with sprite to add fizz (brew!). Add rum. And spider for garnish 🙂
I’m Watching You
Dark (Chocolate) or Black Vodka
Vanilla Ice Cream
In tall glass, combine 3 ounces (3 shot glasses worth) of the dark vodka with 3 ounces of Kahlua. Put two scoops of vanilla ice cream in a mug and pour the vodka/kahlua mixture over the ice cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with spiders and serve immediately.
Martini Glass & Shaker
Your favorite whiskey
Combine three parts ice, Apple Pucker, two parts whiskey and one part tonic water and pour….
Orange Juice (or tangerine)
In a tall glass – fill with ice, fill glass 3/4 full with orange juice, add dark vodka. Pour over a spoon to add to drink slowly so it will sit on top of OJ. Drink immediately.
