Halloween Cocktail Recipes

Halloween Cocktail Recipes

The time of year is upon us for cauldron’s full of bubbly and foul-looking stuff… designed to woo the grown-ups at the Halloween party instead of the kiddoes.

These cocktail (the term is used loosely here) recipes come variously to us courtesy of Kanon Vodka and Shindigz.
