Muhaahaahaa! Hello my pretties! I mixed up a simple Hocus Pocus Halloween Cocktail for you!

Hocus Pocus Halloween Cocktail - The Foodie Affair

Are you getting in the Halloween spirit? Do you have little ones that will be trick or treating? I had the most fun with the holiday when our kids were young.

Our daughter was the Pink Ranger from the Power Rangers program one year wearing a cute little jumpsuit with an authentic looking mask, boots and gloves. Princess Jasmine from Walt Disney’s film Aladdin was another favorite costume, although now I hear she was mortified (at the age of 4) that she wore a nude colored leotard, and she wasn’t bare bellied like all the other little girls!  LOL – who knew?!!

That same year our son was Woody from the Toy Story wearing a fringed vest, and a real cowboy hat and boots! So adorable! We would coach them on what to say, “Remember to say, Trick or Treat!” And as we left, “Don’t forget to say, Thank you!”  Their voices and little legs got worn out pretty quick, so after an hour or so we were back at the house with piles of candy strewn on the living room floor inspecting their loot!

THEN they got  BIGGER  (10 or 11 years old) and it was much cooler to go collect your candy with a pack of your friends. The cute little plastic pumpkins that held their candy turned into pillow cases, and the mission changed: collect as much candy as you can before your curfew is up!

Six grade is an evil Halloween year for parents! Hogwash, I tell you! It feels like a cruel trick on us parents to get replaced with friends, especially when we just began to get the hang of costume hunting!

So if  you have a little one who is relying on you to make their Halloween costume dreams come true, enjoy every second! The mutant ninja and ballerina phase is short lived!

But regardless of where you are in the realm of Halloween activities, enjoy this cocktail with me, won’t you?

Then look at yourself in the mirror and flash a big cheesy grin! Your teeth should have a lovely cast of gray from the black sugar crystals. It’s quite attractive 🙂 I’m told!

    I’m intrigued with the black sanding sugar. And I love the black-gloved hand that’s holding the cocktail! Halloween was never really celebrated when I was growing up so I have little experience with this celebration however, it is starting to take off in Oz and now some people even decorate their homes xx

      Using honey really gave the sugar some sticking power! It worked great 🙂

      The kids do make Halloween fun, but the adults can be just as mischievous, especially when cocktails are involved 😉
