Okay, I am exactly ONE week away from being off to a Spooktakular Bach Bash!! I will be headed to Austin, TX to meet up with eleven other ladies for some fun. I’m so excited. My cousin is getting married in December in Austin and that’s another whole party by it self. Next weekend we have a full itenarary of fun. And just like with most of these parties… the adult drinks will be flowing!!
Our first night in, I am in charge of cooking dinner for the group. I’ve planned to do something easy and warm (for this cool weather we are having- happy dance please!). I’ll be whipping up a big batch of Taco Soup with all the fixings. But I’m not going to leave it at that. I mean how boring would that be?! I’ll also be coming up with a Spook-tail to serve. Pretty much all the ladies in this group are strangers with the exception of knowing my cousin. A spooky signature cocktail will be the perfect ice breaker for the evening! Normally, I would be super anxious about being with a group I barely know for an entire weekend, but I have to tell ya, I’m SO stinking excited to meet everyone and make some new friends!
Are you planning a Halloween party this fall? Don’t leave a signature cocktail off the menu! Here are several of my favs I have found so far! I’m still deciding on which one I will make for our shindig next weekend!!
FLAVORED SHIMMERY LIQUEUR by THE FLAVOR BENDER
If you know anything about me, then you know that just because my life is engulfed by boys, dirt, and Power Rangers, all things that shimmer and sparkle are what my dreams are made of! These are so fun and absolutely perfect for getting creative with some Spook-tail recipes!
MONSTER MASH MARGARITAS by FREUTCAKE
Blood orange margaritas with gummy eye balls and paper straws? Well DUH!! These are the cutest things ever. And, when Halloween is over, ditch the eye balls and keep on sippin’ mama!! We are drink Margaritas all year round, can I get an witness?!
HAUNTED HIGHBALLS by INSPIRED BY CHARM
Looking for a more creamy dessert treat to serve at your gathering? I don’t think you will find anything more fitting than these little Haunted Highballs. Vanilla Vodka, Chocolate Liqueur, and Hazelnut? Yes, please!!
WALKER BLOOD SANGRIA SHOTS by CRAVINGS OF A LUNATIC
I mean, if we are having a party… you gotta have shots, right? Oh, I’m sorry, my former college student is showing – palm to face! But seriously, these blood sangria shots are the perfect shooters for your Halloween bash!
CANDY CORN JELLO SHOTS by THAT’S SO MICHELLE
Just because you have regular shots… doesn’t mean you can’t have some candy corn jello shots too! How adorable are these!! I’d definitely have to make sure the kiddos didn’t see these!!
BUTTERBEER by HEATHER BAILEY
Where are my Harry Potter fans at?! I’ll admit, I love me some Harry Potter! These cocktails are everything!! I mean besides the yumminess.. I could spend all day chatting about those little broom sticks!
