A group of us crafty (and Canadian) gals have banded together to share 9 fabulous Hallowe’eny projects. At the end of this post, check out some other fabulous DIY projects to get your spook on.
And you know mine is the one that has alcohol in it. Of course it is.
Being a little bit “witchy” can be an unfortunate side-effect of renovations (and moving). Perhaps looking at three piles of teetering boxes in your living room will grate on you one day. Or finding a scratch on your brand new, silk-oiled hardwood floors – that might cause a hysterical cackle to rise up from one’s throat.
But I’ve discovered a concoction that will remove that witchiness from your soul. It will calm the nerves and stop you from reaching out for the corn-husk broom you keep in the laundry room.
It’s called booze.
Well, civilized folks call it a martini. And it’s delicious.
You’ll notice that this martini has bubbles. That’s because I put sparkling water in it – to give it a bit of body and some bubbling cauldron-type magic.
If you’d rather, you can make Witches’ Brew in a highball, too. I just like the martini glass. It makes me feel fancy.
Do you see that fancy sugar on the rim of the glass? It’s just sprinkles from my baking cupboard. Seriously… why haven’t I done that before? The sweet of the rimmer mixes well with the slightly tart taste of the drink.
- 3/4 ounce of Blue Curacao
- 3/4 ounce of Limoncello
- 2 ounces sparkling water or club soda
- Optional: lemon juice and green sprinkles (yes, the kind from the bakery aisle!)
- Rim the martini glass with lemon juice and then dip into a plate covered with green sprinkles; garnish the glass according to taste
- In a martini shaker filled with ice, mix the Blue Curacao, Limoncello together.
- Pour mixture into martini glass; top with sparkling water
- Serve to your witchiest friends!
