Sweet N Sour Blackberry Bourbon Cocktail
This Sweet Tarts drink idea could totally be spun off into an entire party. Instead of the traditional Halloween get-together, do a “sweet and sour” party where everyone needs to come as something sweet or…well, sour.
Kind of like an “angels and demons” theme without the restriction to stick to heaven and hell.
Pals could dress up as a well-known sweet icon from history or their favorite devious character.
Think glittering fairies versus brooding vampires, Alice in Wonderland against the Queen of Hearts, Jasmine and Jafar, etc.
Have happy pumpkins lined up across from angry-faced gourds, and quaint fall globe light strings in contrast with harsh blacklights and spiderwebs.
It could make for a pretty cool setting! Make my Sweet N Sour Blackberry Bourbon Cocktail today!
