Fall Cocktails To Get You In the Halloween Spirit!

PumpkinI love Halloween…trick or treating…horror movies…dressing up…and of course tempting cocktails.  How could one not love a holiday that celebrates all that is magical, mysterious and bewitching. 

If you too are a fan here are a few ideas from our friends at SKYY Vodka, (ri)1 Whiskey, and one from Kara Newman, author of Spice & Ice: 70 Tongue-Tingling Cocktails for NAVAN Natural Vanilla Liqueur to enjoy we approach All Hallows Eve. 

They are scary good, and that is nothing to be frightened of.
