What We’re Loving: Spirited Cocktails for Halloween


No Comments


Come, sit for a spell (sorry just a little Halloween humor). Living just a few miles from Salem, Massachusetts, I appreciate this spooky, kooky, creepy, crawly holiday in a way that goes beyond the scares, tricks, and treats. Halloween, to me, is truly a magical time (and it’s not just because of the witches). When else can we knock on a stranger’s door and expect candy? Make gourds glow with the light of a new face? Dress like a Deviled Egg (devil horns coupled with an egg suit) and somehow not feel ridiculous? Toast to the spirits of our dearly departed with, none other than, a spirited elixir? This holiday is near and dear to my still beating heart, and I wish you all a hair-raising good time this October 31.

A few of the most ghoulish and truly great food bloggers are here to make this Halloween a real scream with some seriously wicked and wonderful concoctions. Beware: You may just lose your head after one or two of these deviously delightful cocktails. Cheers!

Named after a Mexican folklore legend, La Llarona (The Weeping Woman), will certainly keep you up at night. {from Muy Bueno Cookbook}
