Why is it that Halloween and drinking go hand in hand? I don't quite understand it all. Maybe it's so we feel more brave about watching all those creepy movies. Maybe it's so we don't feel weird about wearing random clothes we wouldn't wear on a normal day? Whatever the reason is, I'm definitely not going to knock it. I love myself a good cocktail and I found a perfect one for this spooky night.
Hocus Pocus Brew
1 ounce White Rum (Mount Gay is my favorite)
1 ounce Peach Schnapps
1 ounce Grenadine
2 ounces of lemon juice or lemonade
3 dashes of Blue Curacao
Dip the top of a glass in lemon juice and then colored sugar of your choice. I used purple. Carefully fill the glass with ice. Pour in rum, schnapps, grenadine, and lemon juice or lemonade if you want it on the sweeter side. Stir. Along the sides of the glass, pour in the dashes of blue curacao to create your purple pocus streaks.
