The most wonderful time of the year is here! No, not Christmas, or even the kids going back to school- I’m talking about Halloween. In my book, it’s the perfect holiday- no gifts to buy, no big family gatherings (not that I don’t love my family), no big meal to make- just some good ol’ creepy fun.
Little kids can dress up as their favorite character and go door-to-door begging for candy and it’s totally socially acceptable, and no one thinks it’s weird if a grown person shows up to a bar dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. In fact, that person deserves some major props if the costume is executed even slightly well. Of course, it is also the night when scantily clad versions of just about any character show up everywhere. Brace yourselves for all the Sexy Donald Trumps and Sexy Pizza Rats you are going to be seeing this weekend.
Whether you are the type to go all out and get dressed up, or just prefer to have some grown up fun, The Steer has cooked up a couple of creepy cocktails to get the party started this weekend:
Let’s start with the Grave Digger: Martini-Godiva Chocolate and Vanilla Vodka with an Oreo Rim and Gummy Worms.
Too rich for your blood? Maybe a Venom-Rocks is more your poison: Melon Liquor, Grey Goose Vodka, a Splash of Orange Juice, and a Splash of 7-UP.
Feeling dead on your feet after a long week? Try the Zombie-Hurricane: Light Rum, Dark Rum, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple Juice, Orange Juice, and Blue Curacao.
The Kiss Of Death Shot could be the cure to what ails you or your untimely demise: Torched Cherry Bacardi Rum, Cherry Syrup, and a Crushed Smarties Rim.
For all you out there that love a good fall brew, there is the Southern Tier Pumking, Sam Adams Octoberfest, and UFO Pumpkin. Try them prepared with a cinnamon and caramel rim for a sweet treat.
If you are the type who would like something seasonal and spooky, but traditional, The Steer also serves a wickedly good Bloody Mary, a brooding Dark and Stormy, and a warm and cozy Apple Cider Hot Toddy (made with Laird's Applejack Brandy.)
And don't forget-just like all those Sexy Donald Trumps out there-these Creepy Specialty Drinks will only be around for this haunted weekend, so let's enjoy them (responsibly of course) while we can!
