Since Halloween is next Monday I thought it would be fun to share Halloween inspired content for the next couple of days!
Besides my usual outfit posts, prepare for things to get a little spooky around here. First up, you know how much I love making cocktails, it’s kind of my thing and nothing makes happier than when I am able to combine two of loves (holidays and cocktails) into one very fun post. These Halloween cocktails were so much fun to create and so so simple. If you’re looking to infuse a little ghoulish charm into your Halloween party this weekend then I highly suggest serving up some of these creepy cocktails (the Bloody Murderita is definitely my drink of choice). Cheers!
Witches Brew: An orange infused beer cocktail
-1 bottle of wheat beer (I used Mill Street Belgian Wit)
-1 oz Grand Marnier
-1/4 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
-Broomstick + Halloween gummy worm garnish
In a highball glass, add Grand Marnier and orange juice. Top with beer and serve with a broomstick cocktail stirrer and Halloween gummy worm.
Bloody Murderita: A cranberry infused margarita
-1oz 1 tbsp cranberry sauce or 2oz cranberry simple syrup
-1/2oz triple sec
-Juice of 1 lime

-Optional: rim glass with cranberry sauce by simply dipping your glass into a bowl of the sauce
-Shake well and strain into a martini glass.
-Add a spider ring on the rim.
