Last Minute Halloween Cocktails Ideas… Because Life

Halloween this year is on a Tuesday, and have I bought candy yet? Oh, you bet I haven’t!

Scare The Sh*t Out Your Friends This Halloween

Halloween to kids mean dressing up as your favorite character and trudging through the cold with your parents, begging strangers for candy. Halloween as a college student means dressing up in the least amount of clothing possible and drinking everyone under the table. Halloween in your 30’s is a little different experience. You have matured. You don’t need candy. You can buy your own. You don’t need lingerie as a costume you’ll catch a cold! You have extra funds now… from your job. Funds for extravagant costumes, props, food and signature cocktails. And you want to scare the shit out of your friends on Halloween. Why is that? I don’t really know; maybe we are hoping to see our grown up friends piddle in their pants and turn white as a ghost while a zombie jumps out and tries to eat their arm. Let your imagination run this year, here are some helpful starters.
