Adult Trick-or-Treating...

As the Halloween Holiday quickly approaches, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite 'themed' cocktails!  Adults seem to love Halloween (quite possibly equally as much as kids) due to the fact that it's one holiday that they can dress up like whores & have an excuse for it  indulge in sweet things in character with good friends & family.  If you're planning a Halloween party, be sure to try these fun Adult drinks on your spooky day...
