Spiralized Apples

Are kitchen gadgets taking up a lot of space in your kitchen? This easy fall drink uses a spiralizer- a popular kitchen gadget often used for making zoodles (aka zucchini noodles).

You might have a handheld spiralizer or even better, an Apple Peeler Corer Slicer.

I was looking for a new use for my spiralizer because I cannot bear to part with it even though I only use it about once every two years.

We’ve been through 3 moves together, and I have faithfully packed it up and found a new space for it every time.

Make Black Ice

Just a few drops of McCormick black food coloring added to dark juice makes perfectly festive black ice.

Freeze the ice cubes the night before you plan on serving this Halloween sangria.

This Green Lagoon Punch recipe is another creepy alternative that my kids are requesting this month.

Strawberry Milk Bubble Tea is spooky enough to serve this Halloween also. Make it with orange milk for a festive twist.

Kid-Friendly Halloween Drink

Mocktails are becoming increasingly popular with adults. No need to consume alcohol to have a fun time!

Make this drink alcohol-free by swapping out the wine for grape juice, cranberry juice, or any favorite.

You could even use pineapple juice dyed green!

If you are serving this Blackberry Apply Spooky Sangria wine pitcher in mixed company with kiddos, I recommend you write, “Not Safe For Kids” on a piece of bright tape or paper and attaching to the pitcher or handle (and of course, keep out of reach from little hands).
