2 Spooky Halloween Cocktails October 28, 2016

by Eat

While the kids are busy feasting on apple monsters, booooonana ghosts, and carved oranges, whip up a special something for the adults in the room. And by special something, we mean Halloween cocktails. Chef Freida channeled her inner bartender to create a Blood and Sand and a Virgin Bloody Mary (noticing a certain gory theme here?). Both recipes require minimal work but yield MAXIMUM flavor.

No fancy bartending tricks, just treats.
