Halloween is all about treats, with maybe a few tricks thrown in for good measure, so we’ve scoured the dark places of FriendsEat.com to discover some tantalizing treats that are sure to be the hit of any party. Here are some ideas to get you started for this year’s masked blast.
First and foremost, any good host has an obligation to provide his or her guests with ample liquid libations to keep them hydrated and happy. Here are some ideas to set the tone for your party. All brews are family-friendly, but you can add your own alcoholic touch to provide more of a kick for the adults!
“Witches Brew” – This frighteningly tasty punch will have your guests going back for seconds and thirds. Add some of your favorite alcoholic brew to give it an adult flair … if you dare!
“Bloody Punch” - This is another Halloween favorite that is “G” rated as written, but which could be made a bit more potent for an adult party. Attractive and delicious, a bowl of “Bloody Punch” could have a place of honor on the entryway buffet, setting the stage for the rest of the night.
“Pumpkin Punch” - This is an innovative way to use a pumpkin … just make sure you don’t select one that has already been carved into a jack-o-lantern!
