Celebrity Style Favorite: Deathly Hallows Cocktail

Halloween Cocktails

Halloween Cocktails

Celebrities know who to do it throw a great Halloween party (I’m looking at you Cindy Crawford and Heidi Klum) and treat their guests like the A-List friends they are, so why can’t you? It’s Halloween week so, why not treat yourself and your style savvy friends to a Deathly Hallows Cocktail?

What is a Deathly Hallows Cocktail? It’s a mix some of my autumn favorites. A splash of cranberry juice, a little tequila, a dash of orange liquor, lemon juice for warmth, maple for sweetness, and topped off with ginger beer. This is sweet, smoky, and all things cozy, but also gives off the spookiest of Halloween vibes. To give the drink a little smokiness, finish each drink off with a sprig of fresh thyme that can then lit on fire. It’s mostly just fun for presentation, but it does infuse the drink with hints of fresh thyme, which is perfectly paired with the cranberry.

Also, if you aren’t into cranberry flavors, pomegranate or blackberry juice (just mash up a few blackberries) would both be great in its place.

I’m really hoping to have put you guys into the Halloween spirit!
