It’s a week of spine chilling spirits, ghoulish garb, spooky tricks and lots of treats. If you are hosting the neighborhood this Halloween, set-up a fun “spirits” bar for your ghostly guests. You can easily turn your favorite drinks into festive Halloween versions of themselves using printable labels. At last year’s neighborhood party, Christi and I draped a large countertop with a black tablecloth and placed a few different sized boxes underneath to create height and dimension. Add skull-shaped ice and gummy eyeballs to your bar to go with a bevy of beverage choices such as the “Dark & Spooky,” “Zombie Tonic,” “Bone Juice,” and our favorite, “The Black Widow.”
3 parts vanilla vodka
1 part black anise-flavored liqueur (recommended: Sambuca)
1 part espresso
Black licorice, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients except the licorice with ice and shake to mix. Serve in a cocktail martini glass.
