Halloween is this Thursday and what better way to celebrate this haunting evening than with a festive cocktail in hand. I could really use a drink about now, with all the evacuating, and packing up cars. It’s really taken a toll on me. You are never Really prepared, even though most of us know what items we would take upon an emergency exit. The basics things like pictures, jewelry and computer hard drives are the first to mind, but things that are irreplaceable like Christmas ornaments or sentimental items sometimes are overlooked. That being said, Halloween is definitely On this year.
A bloody cocktail – aka Pomegranate Martini, to make things a tad haunting and create the perfect atmosphere for a fun celebration is in order. Vodka, pomegranate juice and lime juice create a potion worth sipping. The black sugar and spider are extra to ensure a Spooktacular experience.
