Dracula's Kiss

I have a thing for Vampires. I always have. There's just.....something about them. I find them sexy as hell. Whoops, tangent...

My computer is fixed! My computer is fixed! My computer is fixed! My computer broke first thing Monday morning and I was promptly informed that it's journey to the "Land of Oz" where it would be fixed, plus the return journey, would take at least a week. Cue my heart sinking because that meant no editing my photos or blogging.  These weeks, when I can't do something I get so much joy out of, remind me how much I love doing this. Which brings us to today's post.

My Annual Halloween Costume Party is this weekend and I can't believe it's been six years since I started this awesome tradition. The first year I thought I would be super Martha Stewart and make a signature cocktail. Epic fail. Trying to make craft cocktails with a group of 30+ people is not efficient or fun. Now I stick to wine and beer and have a much better time.

But, let's say you're settling in for a cozy evening at home to watch a scary movie. This occasion lends itself to something a bit more special that helps create a spooky, fun mood. You can find the recipe for Dracula's Kiss below. My favorite part is that when you stab the blackberries the juice kind of looks like blood. It went perfect with a spicy batch of homemade Siracha Popcorn and the best Halloween movie ever, you guessed it, Halloween! We had a great, and very spooky evening......enjoy...if you dare...:)
