I’m going to be real with you here… I don’t really like Halloween. I don’t like costumes, I don’t like carving pumpkins and trick or treating was never that much fun as a kid because houses were too spread out and driveways were too long. But complaining aside, let’s talk about two things I do like… a lot. Candy and cocktails.
Inspired by IZZE’s bold, bright colors and flavors (cherry lime, mmmmmm!), I grabbed some of my favorite Halloween candies and created cocktail stirrers combining different flavors and shapes to create a playful candy pairing for your witch’s brew. To make your own candy cocktail stirrers, grab wooden skewers and a variety of candies (gummies work well!) and get to work creating your very own candy kabobs. Top things off with the most festive candy of ’em all, pumpkins, and trim the length of your stirrer to fit your glasses.
Who says trick or treating is only for kids?! While I won’t be throwing a big Halloween party this year you bet I’ll be whipping up my favorite IZZE Cherry Lime Margaritas or trying my hand at a fall-inspired IZZE Pomegranate cocktail just to have an excuse to indulge in a candy cocktail stirrer (or two).
Are you doing anything fun to celebrate Halloween this year? What are your favorite Halloween candies?
