A Haunted Garden Halloween Hop - Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat and Give Me Something Good to Drink! (and eat)

Thank you for visiting the Wilder side of the Haunted Garden. I heard you trick or treat. We have both. Sultry heat in the stories and something sweet to wet your lips.

Our treats will bring out your Wilder side.

Milky Way in a Glass
Blend 1 oz amaretto almond liqueur, 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Pour over ice and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon

Tootsie in a Glass
Layer in a large high ball glass - 2 oz grenadine syrup, 5 oz amaretto almond liqueur, 3 oz lemon juice. Stir lightly. add 2 drops chocolate syrup and let it sink in the glass.

Caramel Apple in a Glass
Pour 1/4 cup Sour Apple Pucker schnapps and 1/4 cup Butterscotch liqueur into glass
Stir in 1 tbsp triple sec (taste best if ingredients are ice cold)

Snickers in a Glass
Pour  1 oz Dark Creme de Cacao,  1/2 oz Irish cream and 1/2 oz Frangelico over ice cubes. Top with 1/2 oz light cream. Stir and serve.

Cotton Candy in a Glass
Stir together 1 oz. Amaretto, 1 oz. Vodka, and a splash of pink lemonade (to your taste)

And because I love pumpkin seeds, here is a recipe for perfectly roasted seeds.

1 cups whole pumpkin seeds (dried)
1 teaspoons butter, melted
a pinch salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In a bowl toss seeds with the melted butter and salt. Spread the seeds onto a baking sheet.
Bake until golden brown (about 45 minutes). Stir seeds as they bake for best roasting.
