A Spooky Little Drinky-Poo

Happy Halloween! My completed Black Apple doll (from the kit I bought a few weeks ago) turned out perfectly, I think! She is all set for tonight, with her ghosty fabric and her pumpkin.
I meant to share this with you all yesterday, but I forgot. is the recipe for a nice "adult" Fall beverage. Enjoy!
Apple Pie Drink
1 gallon apple cider
1/2 gallon apple juice
3 -4 cups sugar (I used 4, and it is VERY sweet. If you don't like it so sugary, use 3 or less)
4 or 5 cinnamon sticks
Mix above ingredients in 8 qt pot, and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 15 minutes. Cool down and strain. Mix in 1/5th of Vodka or Everclear. Refrigerate 24 hours (I think 6 hours would suffice if you don't have enough time).
☺This can be served cold or warm. If you want to eliminate the alcohol to make it kid-friendly, I would just mix in an equal amount of water (which would be around 3 cups)☺
My cannibalistic pumpkin from last year!

I'm always looking for a good halloween drink, but I don't have all the ingredients, sadly. I loooove your jack o lantern!! I'll post some pics of my last minute Halloween decorations and stuff later. ;) And the doll is cute, too - very appropriate material for today. Boo!! Hope you and your family have lots of fun tonight. I can't wait for the trick or treaters to come.

The cannibal pumpkin is one of the best Halloween ideas yet.

AAAAAAH she is SOOOOO cute. Super cute! You did a great job on your black apple doll. Wouldn't it be great if there was a black apple doll flickr group? Maybe someday. Thanks for sharing.
