creepy cocktail: the dark & spooky

halloween-cocktail

Happy Tuesday, everyone! So sorry that I didn't have a new post for you yesterday. As I mentioned in Thursday's post, we spent the weekend celebrating my cousin's wedding out of town. The plan was to photograph what I wore to the rehearsal dinner on Friday and the wedding outfit from Saturday, but it was such a cluster and a rush, we ran out of time!

Last Tuesday, I shared with you a simple Halloween treat that was perfect for all ages. Today, I am continuing the Halloween preparations and talking about a creepy cocktail! My husband is not only the wine connoisseur, but also the mixologist in the family. He has been experimenting with different cocktails as of late, so I enlisted him to help create a creepy cocktail that is perfect for a Halloween celebration. 

The Dark & Spooky is a play on the Dark & Stormy -- a simple, yet delicious cocktail with only three ingredients: fresh lime juice, ginger beer and rum. It's easy to create a spooky effect by pouring the dark rum {a lighter rum is used in the traditional Dark & Stormy} over a spoon into the glass.

Dark & Spooky

{3} Pour the rum over a spoon into the glass which will allow the rum to be suspended on top of the ginger beer and lime juice mixture creating the creepiest of contrasts!
