Spooky Cocktails & How To Make Them.

As seasons change, so do ingredients. Restaurants are forever in a loop of food and beverage development to keep up with the trends. Each season comes holidays and while turning your food into the holiday themed version of themselves isn’t very sustainable, your bar is the outlet for the “costume party.”

A fun and efficient way to give your bar a holiday twist is dressing up the classics. Read on for how to turn the most popular bar orders into spooky libations.

Blackberry Witch Mojito

Adding blackberries to the classic Mojito gives it the perfect classic color combo of green and purple. Simple and seasonal, as we’re saying farewell to blackberry season late Fall. The Sanderson sisters would be all over this!

Bloody Mary Shooters (served in threes)

As legend goes, if you say “Bloody Mary” three times in front of a mirror in the dark, her ghost will show itself. I’m not one to experiment with the other side, but I’d love a trio of bloody mary shooters to participate in this scary legend.

I’ve always been in love with all things hospitality as I believe that food brings us together, and drinks keep us together. After some time operating restaurants, I ventured out to my own restaurant consulting company (CHIVE CREATIVE CO.) that focuses on the freedom of creativity in all respects and have had the honor to work with some top tier chefs and companies. I enjoy discussing topics of gastronomy and tapping into the undiscovered corners of the restaurant industry. Also, family meals need to be streamlined.
