Lavish Libations Series: “The Boozy Banshee” with Spooky Treats


Me, me, me!! I’m here for the “boos!”  Stop in for a spell and I’ll give you our latest venture on toasting to our favorite October holiday, Halloween!!!

Are you hosting a Halloween party?  Or, are just wanting a festive drink on Hallow’s Eve?  Well, we’ve got a bone-chilling one for you today.

We are calling it “The Boozy Banshee.”  It’s pretty low in sugar and carbs and actually has something healthy in it….light coconut milk!


For the accompanying spooky snacks, I cheated and bought these “Boo Chips” and “Black Bean Hummus.”  Even though they are store-bought, they are still actually very tasty!  (and GLUTEN-FREE). BOO!fullsizeoutput_44a8.jpegfullsizeoutput_44a7.jpegfullsizeoutput_44b0.jpegfullsizeoutput_44b8

For the drink, I chilled the martini glasses about 15 minutes prior to playing a witch with a small cauldron.fullsizeoutput_44a4.jpegfullsizeoutput_44a6.jpeg

I then added ice to a cocktail shaker and added 1 part of vanilla vodka, 1 part cake vodka, 2 parts of Bailey’s, and 2 parts light coconut milk.  I shook like a scaredy cat and strained into the chilled glass.fullsizeoutput_44bb.jpegfullsizeoutput_44bd.jpeg

I garnished with a Ghost Peep.fullsizeoutput_44bc.jpeg

The Boozy Banshee Recipe:

But don’t get “sheet faced!”
