We are so excited to partner with Smirnoff to bring you our Haunted Halloween Party. Party planning is some of the most fun I will have all season long. To make the party tons of fun and completely memorable I like to simplify the party plan and allow myself plenty of time to mingle and enjoy the event.

The count has been working feverishly on a new potion in his lair in his castle in Transylvania in honor of All Hallows' Eve. He has mastered the perfect creepy blood drips on his cocktail glasses this Halloween, let him show you how. The Vampire's Kiss Martini is sure to 'turn you' with just one sip of this sweet and seductive cocktail.

My husband is a huge fan of candy corn. As soon as you see them in the stores they will certainly be in my pantry. Well this year we happened to be at Target and Chad spotted the candy corn Oreo's. He surprised me with them. You see he loves candy corn and I love Oreo's. It is like a match made in a sugar heaven.
Of course I could have just devoured the whole bag of Oreo's, which to be honest did originally sound like the best option. But I decided to create a fabulous dessert that would combine these fun Oreo's and candy corn.

Two great loves come together and create one purely heavenly treat. Chad has an undying devotion for 2 foods: Candy corns and Rice Krispies Treats! I decided to combine the two and surprise him.

Chocolate covered marshmallows are a Halloween trick or treating score! Getting white chocolate covered marshmallows are nearly a miracle. While creating the cocktail for this weeks Ladies Night Celebration Chad was incredibly inspired by some of his favorite candies from his days Trick or Treating. In the end he had created 3 amazing cocktails and couldn't choose so he decided to share them ALL with you today. He created a scrumptious and fun White Chocolate Ghost Shooter for me. It is creamy, sweet and chocolaty. LOVE!

Happy Thursday and Welcome to Ladies Night! We are quickly approaching All Hallows Eve! We are celebrating Halloween here at The Slow Roasted Italian with a fantastic drink! The perfect adult treat for your Halloween party, the Candy Corn Martini is a Devilish Delight.
Mr. W infused the candy corn into the vodka, which created this fantastic holiday treat. It tastes like Brach's made its own Candy Corn Vodka just for you. So Trick or Treat yourself into this one of a kind drink, I dare you, no I double dog dare you to drink up this cocktail and infuse yourself with Halloween!!! Now go and scare yourself up some fun.
COCKTAIL TIP: Rimming cocktail glasses is simple and something you can do the day before the party. You will need cocktail glasses or cups, 2 shallow bowls slightly larger than your drinking vessel. Choose a liquid to rim with. Most bartenders choose lime or lemon, but to get a heavy duty sugar to stick to our glasses we chose to use our orange liqueur (any sticky liquid would work). Choose dry item to adhere to rim: salt, sugar, chopped candies are all great options. We chose black sanding sugar; you can find this at your local craft store or in the seasonal section of your grocery store.
Pour your liquid in one bowl and dry ingredient in the other bowl. Place glass rim down in the liquid. Spin to coat the top edge of glass. Wait a moment for excess liquid to drip off. Place coated glass in bowl with dry ingredient and tap to coat. Flip and allow glass to dry.

Happy Thursday and welcome to Ladies Night at The Slow Roasted Italian! As All Hallows Eve closes in, we are celebrating Ladies Night with a ghoulish delight.
The Vampire Eclipse is a special treat created just for you by the count himself deep in the castle's lair. The count worked feverishly to capture the essence and magic of the suns eclipse. A dark river of grenadine rests on the bottom of the glass, while repelling the suns burst of orange energy, trapping a cherry between day and night. The light rum entombs this moment forever.
Original recipe developed by Chad of The Slow Roasted Italian
The Vampire's Eclipse
1/2 ounce grenadine
1/2 ounce orange juice
1 ounce light rum (Bacardi)
1 maraschino cherry
Gently pour grenadine in shot glass first. Then slowly pour in the orange juice (pour down the side of the glass to avoid mixing your layers). Slowly lower the cherry through the orange juice to rest on the grenadine. Lastly, add rum pouring it down the side of your glass.
Serve and enjoy!
