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:

(makes 1 drink)

1 part cake vodka

1 part vanilla vodka

2 parts Bailey’s Irish Cream

2 parts light coconut milk

Ghost Peeps, for garnish

Add ice to a shaker and pour ingredients into it.  Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled glass.  Top with a Ghost Peep.fullsizeoutput_44c5.jpegfullsizeoutput_44c7.jpeg

These will be a lot like a ghost at your party…..NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T!

But don’t get “sheet faced!”

Cheers!

Toodle-boo from our crew,

Melanie
