All Hallows’ Eve is upon us, but it isn’t just a holiday for the kiddies. For the adults, this is a time when a refreshing cocktail will hit the spot whether at a party or unwinding after slinging candy at trick or treaters.
But seriously, saying you got all the candy doesn’t exactly scream sophistication.
