Halloween Apple Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Sinister Cider Cocktail

If you love spirited Halloween beverages but are looking for a libation that's not quite as interactive as a Slime Rickey or an Eyeball Highball, then try this Sinister Cider cocktail; it incorporates the dark hues of Halloween without losing an ounce of sophistication.

Black sanding sugar isn't the easiest item to find, but if you can track it down (I located some at a nearby Williams-Sonoma), it'll add a truly memorable touch. When the sugar melts, it turns a greenish hue for an even eerier effect! For the spooktacular recipe, keep reading.
