Halloween may look different this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun in the comfort of our homes. Something fun I like to do is make desserts and drinks for my boys and family. I learned that most drinks you can turn into something festive by just adding festive sprinkles or some kind of spooky garnishment and what I am about to share will only take you 5 minutes to make!
This Halloween make a Spooky Oreo Milkshake that will make you the Halloween queen or king of the house! This recipe is so easy and if you have kiddos you can have them help make this as well.
4-6 scoops of vanilla ice cream
2/3 cup milk
Festive Halloween sprinkles (optional)
In your blender combine 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream, 4-8 Oreos (this all depends on how chocolatey you want it) and 2/3 cup of milk (any kind of milk will work). Blend until smooth. (You can add more ice cream or more milk until you have a consistency you like)
Drizzle Chocolate syrup inside your Mason Jar or any Clear cup of your choice
Pour the milkshake into the glass and top with whip cream.
Add festive sprinkles and garnish with an oreo and VOILA you have a spooky oreo milkshake!
You can also go to the dollar store and find plastic eyeballs or spiders to add for some extra fun.
Want to make it BOOzy?! Instead of milk you will add ¼ cup of Baileys Irish Cream and ¼ cup of Vanilla Vodka
Now for all my cocktail lovers I have something EASY and TASTY for you to make and show off on Instagram.
Witches Brew Cocktail
When I first made this, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it and I was pretty impressed with myself of how much I liked it and wanted another. Since this drink has a liqueur and not anything too strong you can enjoy this without feeling worried that you’ll end up seeing ghost (JK)
2 1/2 oz Sour Apple liqueur or melon liqueur
2 1/2 oz orange juice
2 1/2 oz Sprite
Black Sprinkles (Optional)
You can use any glass you prefer; I used a martini glass and dressed the rim with black sprinkles.
In a shaker add 2 ½ oz of sour apple liqueur & 2 ½ oz of orange juice, add ice and shake until chilled. Pour into your glass and then add 2 ½ oz of sprite and ENJOY!
Wishing you, your family & friends a safe and fun Halloween.
