Creepy Fang Cupcakes

I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween already! Is this year going way too fast for anyone else, or is it just me? I certainly couldn’t let one of my favorite holidays pass by without making some Halloween cupcakes. These are scarily simple – I just made some chocolate cupcakes using a boxed mix, frosted them with a vanilla buttercream and decorated them with these super fun gummy fangs I found at Target.  Yes, I went to Target for toilet paper and ended up leaving with gummy fangs.  You know how it is, don’t lie.

Pumpkin Pie Vodka – The Saga Continues…

I know that Target would like us all to think that Christmas is next weekend but in my world it’s still fall, and Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet!  I’m still crunching through leaves, dreaming of turkey and stuffing, and mixing up drinks with my Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie vodka.

My bottle is almost empty so I went out to the liquor store today to replenish my supply.  I went to the place where I got my first bottle and they didn’t have any!  I’ll admit, I panicked a little – I still have quite a few drink ideas that I want to try!  Luckily I found it at the next store I tried so I bought two bottles just to be on the safe side.  Oh, and I bought a bottle of Pinnacle Marshmallow as well.  Pumpkin, marshmallow…it works for Scentsy, it could work for a cocktail too!

I felt like a bit of an alcoholic marching up to the checkout line with three bottles of vodka and a case of beer (for the boyfriend) but all was forgotten after I handed over my debit card and realized I just spent $63 dollars on booze.  It’s an investment??  Yeah, a blog expense.  That’s what it is…

Today’s drink is super easy to make, and combines three fall flavors: pumpkin, cranberry and ginger.  It’s the Cran-Pumpkin Pop!

Pour the vodka and cranberry juice into a glass, then fill the glass with the ginger ale and some ice.

It’s a Shirley Temple for fall!!

Do you have any favorite fall cocktails?  AND, does anyone else agree with me that Christmas commercials before Thanksgiving have replaced political ads as the most annoying thing on TV right now?
