Did someone say Spicy Paloma??

Happy Soiree Bar

Happy Cinco De Mayo! 

SO I mean obviously I had to make some margaritas today!! More specifically a paloma - because it is one of my top favorite drinks! 

I love love love grapefruit... so so much. My abuela use to tell me they were her "dieta" (diet) food, and I use to steal them when I could, and smother them in sugar. 

But now I skip the sugar and just enjoy them as MY dieta food ;)

Well not only do I love them for breakfast, I love them in my dranks! bonus points that they're pink!

So today I made some for me and my neighbor (if you're following me on the gram than you know I hopped the fence to bring her some, because after all what are friends for?)

Anyway scroll down for the recipe....you're gonna love it! 

Ingredients (for two cups): 

1/4 cup of Tequila (more if you like it stronger, I won't judge)

1 grapefruit (freshly squeezed) or 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice

1/4 cup of lime juice (I used freshly squeezed)

Jalapeños 

2 tablespoons of Simple Syrup

Directions: 

Soak 2 slices of Jalapeños in the 1/4 cup of Tequila for 30 minutes

Then insert all the other ingredients in a shaker, and shake shake shake! 

Pour over ice, add some more jalapeños and sliced grapefruit for garnish and soiree!

last minute halloween treats

Happy Halloween everyone! 

Are you super last minute like me?

Or maybe you aren't big on cooking or baking. Don't worry I've gotcha covered today with some super last minute easy Halloween treats. 

Pink Mummy Cookies:

Buy some Milano cookies, bright pink chocolate, and candy eyes. You can create a some super cute mummies! 

grab a small ziplock bag, add melted pink chocolate, cut a hole in the tip of the bag. Then drizzle the chocolate over the cookies and add some candy eyes. done! SO GOOD! 

Poison Cupcakes:

these ones you might need a little time! just to bake the cupcakes, but you could also buy some already made cupcakes. (Target sells some AMAZING mini red velvet cupcakes- seriously they're so good). 

I bought a red velvet cake mix box, made these cupcakes and bought some black frosting. Using a piping tip I frosted these creepy things. The witch fingers are candy I found at Michaels. I also bought the cupcake liners and "flavor shot" skulls there, they come in a package. 

Pour some booze (I used Black Label) in a shot glass and suck it up with the flavor shots and insert them in the cupcakes. DONE! 

There you have it some really easy quick last minute Halloween treats! 

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
