Hello and happy almost Halloween!
How in the heck is almost Halloween? I feel like it was just yesterday that it was this time last year and it is literally blowing my mind.
But!! This time of year is my absolute faveeeee. I love having an excuse to watch Coraline, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hocus Pocus, and yes, even Halloweentown, without being judged.
That being said, I was moving through Marshalls the other day because I was convinced I needed more Fall decor/blog pic props, and I just happened to see the LAST 2 cutest, Halloween glasses.
I snagged those up like a fly on rice and forced Arthur to stop at the ABC store so we could grab some cocktail ingredients and put these glasses to good use.
Insert: The Black Spider Cocktail.
( totes just made that name up as I wrote this btw)
The Black Spider Cocktail
♥ Raspberry (or Cherry) Vodka
♥ Fresh Blackberries
♥ Soda Water
♥ Gummies for garnish
♥ In a glass, muddle blackberries & lemon
♥ Add in ice
♥ Top with vodka & soda water
♥ Garnish with a gummy skull & toss in a fun pixy straw
I’ve been drinking these nonstop and love love love them.
You can even do muddled raspberries, add in some grenadine, and voila! Another spooky cocktail.
We have no plans for the 31st and I’m actually 1000% ok with that. I would much rather sit at home in some comfy pjs with a huge bucket of popcorn, candy, and a boozy drink watching a million scary movies.
Sometimes, it’s almost more fun to stay at home than to go out and deal with a bunch of drunk people in insane costumes.
Anyone else with me on this?? Or am I just clearly getting old?
Whatever plans you have, share below! And let me know what costume you’ll be rocking! I love hearing ideas other people have come up with. If you still have no clue what you wanna wear, check out this post for some inspo!
