For my birthday, I wanted a low key night where I watched Hocus Pocus (my favorite Halloween movie) with some friends. Apparently low-key to me means fall foods, pumpkin spice cupcakes, and three specialty cocktails inspired by the Sanderson sisters (and based on the color of their robes). The cocktails are all pretty easy and fairly low maintenance during a party. Just set them up right before and you won’t have to worry about it while you watch a movie or dance until you’re dead. Without further ado:
Sarah: Bubbly, sparkly, and purple. This drink attracted all of the men.
- Champagne (I used Cook’s Brut Grand Reserve)
- Strawberry Pop Rocks
Pour a little bit of Chambord into the bottom of a champagne glass. Fill the glass with champagne. Top with a few Pop Rocks.
Winifred: Traditionally witchy, strong, and has a pretty big bite.
- Jolly Rancher Green Apple Jello
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Cinnamon Whiskey (I used SinFire)
Heat one cup of water on the stove until boiling. Add in the Jello mix and mix until fully dissolved. Add in 1 cup of Cinnamon Whiskey and a couple ice cubes, mix. Pour into Jello shot containers and let chill in the fridge for four hours.
Mary: Fruity, fun, and reliable.
- 1 Part Raspberry Vodka
- 2 Parts Pomegranate Juice
- 2 Parts Cranberry Sprite
Mix together in a large pitcher with ice and pour into individual cups.
Which Sanderson sister is your favorite?
oh my goodness, I want to make the first one tomorrow for Halloween. Never thought of putting pop rocks in a drink…. Such a good idea!
