Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween

Whelp, I just want you guys to know that while spending 30 minutes searching for the perfect image to set the tone for today’s blog (see above), I completely freaked myself out. Jumpy AF now, dudes! Gahhh! I’m going to need a few of today’s feature cocktails after this! Anywho, for today’s “day in the 13” I’m sort of doing what I did in the Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus post–a little of this–a little of that–and hopefully, a whole lot of inspiration. I don’t know about the rest of you, but there really is nothing better than a good old fashion fright fest. You know what I’m talking about–spooky, creepy, frightful stuff that is both chilling and fun. And when I say chilling, I mean this, not this. So, everything in today’s post will center around ghosts and skeleton-types, so hang on to your butts, I aim to freak–you–out. And if by some off chance I fail at freaking you out, don’t be a meany in the comment section or I will Macarena your ass! I’m talking to you, Penelope! Let’s get started . . .

In this post

  • song of the day

Here’s just what the witch doctor ordered to help calm your nerves after a night full of fright. And if you’re as jumpy as I am now, you’re going to need to make a drink just about the size in the above gif.

Apple Pie Moscow Mule

(This one’s for my Moscow Mule lovin’ friend, Melissa!)

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • 4 ounces apple pie vodka or caramel vodka in a pinch
  • 1 bottle ginger beer
  • cinnamon sticks and apple slices for garnish

Directions

  1. Fill two copper mugs with crushed ice.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the apple cider and vodka. Shake to combine.
  3. Pour half of the apple cider mixture into each mug.
  4. Top each mug with ginger beer until full.
  5. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and apple slices.

(Honestly, who’s got time to garnish? Chug that shit down!) Eh, but always remember to please drink responsibly and all that shizz.

I hope you enjoyed this day in the 13 and found some helpful ways to scare the shizz out of yourselves–or someone else.

Until next time . . .

Happy Haunting
