Spooky Cocktails and Creepy Treats

This year I am going to get adventorous and dive into Spooky Cocktails and pair them with Creepy Treats! Since Candy and wine is an every Hall-o-wine thing, Spirits are so fun and specially for Halloween. I am sharing with you a couple of Spooky Cocktails and Creepy Treats. Wether you are joining friends virtually or in person, celebrate this fun holiday with spirits!

Spooky Cocktails

Spooky & Spicy with Absente Absinthe Refined

Handcrafted in the French Alps, Absente is made by following one of the oldest recipes dating back to the 19th century, as well as by using the highest quality artisanal distillation methods and ingredients, including the infamous botanical wormwood (or artemisia absinthium), the key ingredient of the authentic absinthe recipe. Absente Absinthe Refined is a spirit that is excellent for Halloween, it was banned years ago but all the cool kids of the 1850s and 1900s was an absinthe fan. For historical reasons and botanical aromas is perfet to include it in Spicy and Spooky Cocktails.

Katie Stryjewski, better known as Garnish Girl in Social Media is a writer, cocktail photographer, recipe developer, and Instagram influencer! I came accross Katie with her book launch this year and I got very interested in her beautiful approach to mixology and garnishes from the garden. In fact, the name of her book is  Cocktails, Mocktails and Garnishes from the Garden features examples of garnishes and general know-how. It has become in my refference book for mixology tricks and just cocktails recipes in general. I follow her periodically on Instagram and she recently featured a cocktail with Gin. One of my favorite spirits, Gin is another herbaceous distilled that features aromas of blueberries. I loved this Burial Tux Spooky Cocktail, read recipe below:
