Halloween Drinks

Halloween is perhaps the spookiest, and most fun, day of the year. It gives children the chance to live out their fantasy as their favorite character, while allowing adults to be like kids again if only for one night!

Celebrated on October 31, Halloween is also known as All Hallow's Eve. The holiday, which is thought of by some to be a Pagan holiday, originated from Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival.

The festival was originally celebrated in the winter. At that time, days were short, and food supplies were even shorter. The threat of cold and hunger loomed, and many people didn't want to leave their homes because they were afraid of the dark. They were also afraid of the spirits of the dead who were thought to return for just one night to haunt those who were still alive.

In order to leave their homes and blend in with the spirits, people would dress up in costumes so the spirits wouldn't recognize them. Food would also be left on doorsteps to further placate the spirits.

Today the tradition of dressing up still lives on. And, instead of leaving food for spirits, children go Trick or Treating in hopes of filling their bags with lots of goodies.

If you plan on throwing a costume party for the holiday, you may want to consider serving pumpkin flavored drinks, drinks inspired by your favorite Halloween treats, or even a fun spiked punch served in a cauldron that everyone can enjoy.

In keeping with the season, try serving Sandeman's Sangue Frio (Cold Blood).
