Have you already started planning out your Halloween costume? I think it's always fun to dress up a little whether you are going out or staying home to pass out candy. Last year I dressed up like Wednesday Addams to pass out candy to the kids that came by. As of yet though, I don't have any costume ideas planned for this year, but I'm loving all the costume and makeup ideas that are popping up all over the Internet, and of course all the party ideas as well. What do you think will be the big popular costume idea for this year?
To get into the mood, I made one of my favorite drinks, the blood orange margarita, and gave it a little bit of a spooky twist. You can actually give any of your favorite cocktails a Halloween vibe by adding a couple little details. For example, the apple martini can get a scary makeover by drizzling a little bit of grenadine into it to give it a bloody look, or rim the glass with some black sugar. I also like when Halloween cocktails have a little something floating around in them like gummy worms, or olives that look like eyes.
