Halloween Party Ideas

Even though Halloween isn't until Monday, I think that most people will having their parties either tonight or tomorrow night. I have no reason to dress up this year, which actually might be a first. This is one of the two weekends that Bryan and I have open until the end of the year. We have been invited to a few parties, but I think we might take full advantage of relaxing and spending time together. If we were to have a party at our house I would use this idea. How fun is it for your cocktail area? (Assuming it would be an adult-only party.)

Searching everywhere for a good cocktail to share, I thought this Black Widow would be perfect to share with friends.

Black Widow

Cream de Cassis
triple sec
fresh lemon juice
pomegranate juice
licorice strings

1. For two cocktails (one cocktail shaker), mix 2 parts cassis, 3 parts vodka, one part triple sec, 1 part lemon juice and 1 part pomegranate juice.
2. Shake over ice and serve chilled. Drape licorice strings to look like spider legs.

Have a boo-tiful weekend!
