I'm not sure about all of you, but this house is TOTALLY getting into the Halloween spirit. Our oldest daughter has known that she wants to be a witch for Halloween since July and our youngest daughter just got a mermaid costume at Costco the other day. One costume down, hopefully we can borrow a witch costume and then we just need the boys to decide if they are going to dress up this year or not.
My husband and boys want to make a little "Haunted House" this year for the kids to walk through to get their candy on Halloween night. They say it will be a work in progress where they add a little to it every year. Guess that means that the girls and I will hit the street going door to door for treats.
If you missed it.....I BOUGHT A BOTTLE OF BLACK VODKA!! Last year I saw bottles of black vodka at our local BevMo and never bought one. This year I was not going to make that mistake! I am excited to make some cocktails for you all with my black vodka. I think they layered ones look pretty cool. This shooter made me do they squinchy face dance because I really tasted the vodka.....and if you didn't know, I'm not big on taking a straight shot of something.........unless it's Fireball......and it's chilled, then it's not as bad.
Here is my recipe for a Rotten Orange:
- 1 ounce black vodka
- 1 ounce orange juice
I rimmed a shot glass with orange sprinkles to make it more festive. In a shot glass pour in the orange juice. Next layer the black vodka on top and you are done!
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is to my very first Halloween cocktail of the season! More to come......
