Halloween Treats aren't just for kids after all :)

By now you must know how much I love Halloween!  A day to be different, a day to celebrate, and a day to entertain! While much of the focus is spent on costumes and candy, I'd like to offer up a cocktail that's delicious and simple for the well as a virgin version for the kiddos!

Here's what you'll need to get this party started:

- Pinnacle Caramel Apple Vodka
- Apple Cider of your choice
- Black and Orange Halloween Granular Sugar (I found mine at AC Moore)
- Decorative Halloween Straws (I found mine at Michael's Craft Store)
- Caramel Sauce
Here's how to get started:

  1. Pour the caramel sauce on a medium size plate; turn your martini glass upside down and rim the glass in the caramel
  2. Keep the glass upside down and rim in the Halloween sugar
  3. If preparing ahead for a party, place glasses face down on a plate and place in the freezer
  4. In a shaker, add ice and mix equal parts apple cider and Pinnacle Caramel Apple Vodka, and shake

Pour and serve...

Virgin Version {For the Kiddos}

Rim juice glasses following the same steps as listed above.  Be liberal with rimming the caramel sauce to create a SPOOKY dripping effect.
We added in some double chocolate store bought cupcakes for fun and the kids were in sugar heaven!!!!
WARNING:  Sugar = happiness = hyperactive children   :)
If you're not a big fan of cider or martinis, check out the really great Halloween wines that are available at your local wine & spirits shops. I loved this Werewolf brand wine and think it makes a great party drink for guests on Halloween.

Happy Halloween! Be safe everyone :)
