Fall Cocktail Recipe: Werewolves Of London

This Brokers Gin cocktail will leave your guests howling with delight this Halloween.

Halloween Cocktail Recipe

Halloween is one week away. That is right, Halloween is on a FRIDAY this year! That means entertaining will be a little more relaxed knowing you will not have to worry so much about going to work in the morning. You may have your costume ready, and have eaten the first round of candy that you bought, but what about the cocktails? Do you have your Halloween drinks ready to go for your ghostly friends to enjoy?

I have a delicious gin cocktail recipe for you and yours to sip throughout the night. Festively named “Werewolves of London” after the classic fright movie, this fall drink recipe uses Broker’s Gin (get it, Broker’s is from London.) Make a batch of these and have them lined up looking pretty and your guests will howl with delight.

Werewolves of London Cocktail Recipe

  • 3 oz. Broker’s Gin
  • ½ oz. passion fruit syrup
  • 5 blackberries
  • 3 seedless red grapes
  • Dash of grenadine

Muddle the syrup and fruit together in a shaker. Add ice and Broker’s Gin and shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with Halloween Cocktail Stirrers.

This is sure to become a favorite at your Halloween parties from year to year.  And it does not have to be Halloween for you to enjoy the Werewolves of London gin cocktail.  You can call it anything else you want and enjoy it any evening you like.

DIY- REAL Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

It may be over 100 degrees here in Southern California, but we love our pumpkin spice lattes. And now you can leave the drama of “What the what do they actually put into my PSL?” at the coffee shop. I have a pumpkin spice latte recipe that uses REAL pumpkin, and unrefined sugar.

This would be great for a get together on a (not so hot) weekend with friends, or even if you had a Halloween costume party with the neighborhood. REAL PUMPKIN in your pumpkin spice latte, unrefined sugar and nothing fake. You will sure to be a hit as the hostess with the best keep them warm and toasty while Trick-or-treating recipe. Or you could just make this for yourself as you drive on into work. No need to pay the coffee shop $5 for what you can make at home.

Opening day at the Del Mar Race Track races means cocktails, mingling, and all the best dressed hats in Southern California.

Hats, hats and more hats. That is all you will see about the Del Mar Racetrack today. There is even a contest today at during the opening day festivities for the best hat, and these women take it serious! You’ll see plenty of hats, tight dresses, and women getting their heels stuck in the dirt in the parking lot… and the grass at the entryway. Please be careful ladies.

If you cannot make it to Del Mar for Opening Day at the racetrack hold your own festivities at home! Get a great big hat, and bedazzle as you wish. On an episode of The Girls Next Door Bridget Marquardt hot glued my little ponies to her hat. It was perfect!

You can also watch the races on cable at home. Yes, there is a cable channel for horse racing. Why not gather the friends around, bring your hats, and watch the races. If you can’t watch the races, rent some old movies like National Velvet, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Seabiscuit, or Secretariat.

You can also mix up some horse race themed cocktails!
