Halloween Cocktail – Fiendish Fizz…..

Perfect Halloween Cocktail – Fiendish Fizz…..

We have made a perfect Cocktail to celebrate with this Halloween and we called it Fiendish Fizz….. The most perfect Halloween  Cocktail, it’s made with Aperol and Prosecco – can’t be bad can it?

Are you a fan of Aperol? I think it’s a very acquired taste…

Fiendish Fizz Halloween cocktail

If you have children around then for the kids version I suggest you simply swap out the alcohol for either fizzy orange Lucocade or Tizer! ( Remember Tizer?! oh it’s been years since I had Tizer)

Do you do much at Halloween? We never used to but have recently started to embrace the celebrations by dressing up the house for ‘trick or treaters.’ However I do have a strict rule, once the clock hits eight that’s it! My doors closes and no more answering it.

I believe that the real trick or treaters, those that have made the effort to dress up etc are done by 8! Home and in the bath lol

Then it’s time for cocktails 🙂 My house my rules lol!!

I also do a sort of a Halloween / Bonfire style supper. Usually something like my Stuffed Jacket Potatoes that can be prepared the day before, and then banged in the oven. Served with beans and there you go the perfect tea

If you’re trying to be a little healthier you might life to try my Healthy Stuffed Jacket Potatoes 

Have a great night!

The meaning…..

So what actually is Halloween? Well according to Wiki Halloween is the evening before the Christian holy days of All Hallows’ Day (also known as All Saints’ or Hallowmas) on 1 November and All Souls’ Day on 2 November, thus giving the holiday on 31 October the full name of All Hallows’ Eve (meaning the evening before All Hallows’ Day).

Oh and just for interest Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising and souling), attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, as well as watching horror films.

What will you do? 

Enjoy – Booooooo
