i’m getting super festive today! even though i think we’re just gonna be handing out candy after our move this year, i love celebrating halloween — and i’m way more into the creepy stuff than the orange and black.
so in the spirit of creepy – i wanted to make a fun cocktail that will not only creep out your guests, but probably gross them out too. because these things are pretty messy, but they look cool and bloody! i decided to make spiked shirley temples because they’re red and because i still have a deep love for them from childhood.
