Vampire’s Weakness (Blood Orange Spritzer)
Willcookforsmiles generously shared her idea for a bloody Halloween drink. No this won’t turn you into a vampire because this is just a blood orange soda. Strictly for adults because it’s rum! The bloody effect on the wine glass are just melted cornstarch with red food coloring. Pretty neat!
It doesn’t look neat, because it’s made to look really ridiculous like a swamp but who knows it might taste really well right? Obey your thirst with this Swamp Juice made up of lemonade but filled with lots of gummy creatures and the green food coloring is the very reason why it’s green.
Whatever you plan to served on your Halloween party, do consider your budget, time and availability of the ingredients. If you got your own support group in preparing your Halloween food, snacks and appetizers then that would be awesome. Some parties don’t really served heavy meals, some pika-pika or finger food will do. I hope you enjoyed the list and will add up soon as I see interesting Halloween recipes to suggest to you guys.
