A Halloween Treat, Halloween Cocktail and Recent Outfits

Happy Thursday!  Today I wanted to share two fun ideas for Halloween one for the kids and one for the adults!

LITTLE BATS

These could not be easier and the kids loved helping to make them.  I found the recipe on Pinterest.

-1 bag snack sized reeses cups

– oreos

– icing (I bought the kind in a small squeeze tube)

– edible eyes

Break off the tops of the oreos and break into halves.  Use the icing to secure the oreos wings on the reeses cups and then use the icing to glue the eyeballs.  

HOOCH RITA

If you are not familiar with Hooch, you need to be.  It is the perfect cocktail mixer to have on hand.  

It is a bubbly limeade mixer and we love it.  It is not super sweet which I like.  It is great mixed with vodka or tequila.  If you are pregnant it also makes a great mocktail, my sister likes to sip it on ice with no alcohol added. 

It was created locally here in Charleston and is carried in several stores in the Southeast but for those of you not local you can order HERE

This is what the bottle looks like if you are trying to find it.

You can make this rita with either vodka or tequila.  Just add Hooch, a little fresh squeezed lime, a dash of triple sec if you have it on hand and fresh sliced lime for garnish.  Serve over ice and we like to salt our rims with pink Himalayan sea salt!

    Love all the pieces you picked up at Loft! For reference, can you share what size you purchased the dress and floral blouse in? Thank you! 🙂

    I would LOVE it if you someday did a post about jewelry. In addition to my "real" pieces, I love getting more trendy things too, especially necklaces. But I get so confused sometimes b/c I don't want something that will tarnish easily or look cheap. For example, I only recently learned the difference b/w gold filled and goldplated. Would love your advice sometime! Just an idea 🙂
