3 Festive Halloween Martinis

Halloween martinis will make you the most famous mixologist at this year’s Halloween party! Candy corn martinis, dark chocolate martinis, and Twizzler-tinis – because if you can make cocktails with candy, you should!

Candy corn, vodka, and orange liqueur come together into these delicious and festive candy corn martinis. \

We’re not going to talk about how it snowed in October. (which is very out of the ordinary for my part of the states). We are not going to talk about how Handsome and I hopped in the truck anxious to find a new adventure and drove 2 hours north yesterday. Just to find that some places actually got a LOT of snow and that entire towns were out of power.

Then got not-lost in wide open spaces trying to find a rest stop, while my kidneys thought they would explode. Just to be told to take it somewhere else when we finally did find a corner store.

We are not going to talk about the awesome magazine I found dedicated to meat and sausages tucked behind all of the do it yourself, quick and simple, fast and tasteless, Halloween or Christmas inspired magazines on the shelf, or how we ended up wasting a great day at the mall (bust).

Nope. We’re going to sit back and get our drink on. Why?

These 3 Halloween martinis will make you the popular mixologist at your Halloween party! Candy corn martinis, dark chocolate martinis, and Twizzler martini recipes! \

Because it’s Monday. Because we’re big kids.

And because it’s the spookiest night of the year, children will be trick or treating, candy will be filling pillowcases and many many parents will be dealing with the sugar high that follows. There are plenty other posts about treats for the little monsters on this site.

Why oh why did I NOT buy any Twizzlers? That Twizzler-tini sounds fabulous and the hubby loves him some Twizzlers. Dang it. Looks like I will be hitting up the post-Halloween sales tomorrow.
