Three Hocus Pocus themed mocktails to enjoy with your Halloween weekend.
We have fully embraced fall and one of our favorite things about this beautifully crisp season is, of course, Halloween! Most of us are keeping it low key this year, without parties and re-imagining how to celebrate our spookiest holiday.
Even if you're staying in with movies and popcorn we know just the thing to turn a low key day into a festive fête! These non-alcoholic cocktails are inspired by a classic Halloween flick, but could easily be paired with the Halloween movie of your choice.
Hocus Pocus is streaming just about everywhere right now and if like us, you are planning on celebrating Halloween tomorrow by staying in and relaxing, we've got you covered from dawn, till spooky, spooky dusk.
We think even the temperamental and hard to please, Winifred Sanderson would love these. Just light all candles with caution!
