I love halloween. There…. I said it. I love how excited all the kids get at the bus stop when they discuss what they are dressing up as. I love that my munchkins get to imagine they are a ninja or dinosaur for a night and dress the part. I enjoy the creativity of all these tiny humans that get to roam around our neighborhood streets and unabashedly ask for candy! And now I LOVE that I have an easy but simply delicious cocktail to sip while I walk from door to door for a few hours. I’ll be whipping up a batch of this for my bus stop friends so we can enjoy the evening just as much as the kiddos!
