Come Party With Me: Pumpkin Carving — Drinks

According to the invitation, I've asked guests to bring their own beer to my pumpkin carving party. I'll be supplying the pumpkins and lots of delicious treats, so I don't feel bad about requesting guests to BYOB. Just be sure to clear a spot for beer on the day of the event; make room in the fridge or fill coolers and beer buckets with ice. That way, when guests arrive with a six pack, they can immediately chill it.

Have sparkling and still water and classic sodas like Coca Cola and Sprite as options for those who don't drink beer. I'll also have one specialty cocktail on hand to help get the party started. For the recipe to this festive, easy-to-make cocktail,


Orange Halloween Cocktail
From Giada De Laurentiis

2 cups orange juice
2 cups chilled sparkling water
1/2 cup maraschino liqueur
1/4 cup limoncello
Ice
Black licorice, for garnish

  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the licorice, in a pitcher. Stir to mix.
  2. Pour into glasses and garnish with a stalk of licorice.

If I saw that at a party I would think the licorice was to be used as a straw, not a garnish lol.

I am 25 years old, and it wasn't until last week that someone taught me you could use Twizzlers as a straw. It is like I've been given a new reason to live!
