To many, Halloween is for the kids and about ghosts, pumpkins, candy and costumes. But children aren’t the only ones who are entitled to enjoy themselves on All Hallow’s Eve.
Create Your Own Halloween Bottle Labels
According to a 2010 survey conducted by BIGresearch, Americans spent $200 million MORE on adult Halloween costumes than children’s costumes. In addition, a larger percentage of American adults attended or hosted a Halloween party than took their children trick or treating. So, it’s pretty safe to say that Halloween has become a holiday for adults.
Recognizing this trend, Shindigz, where the world comes to party, has partnered up with PartyAndEventGuide.com to come up with a list of dastardly adult drinks that are spooky, fun and full of Halloween “spirits.” PartyAndEventGuide.com has a drink recipe guide that features hundreds of unique drink combinations. While perusing through their list, Shindigz came up with their own list of blood curdling concoctions that are sure to please the guests of any party or night club.
