Whether we’re stealing “fun sized” pieces from our kids’ Halloween bags till we’ve gotten to king size status or giving in to the office supply, candy during the month of October is extremely hard to avoid. Suffice to say, these candy and cocktail pairings are proof that there are better ways to Halloween like an adult.
Snickers – Old Fashioned
A classic candy for a classic drink. Why wait?
111 Suggestion: Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Starburst – Moscow Mule
Fruity candies are a mule’s best friend. This light combo will definitely have you tasting the rainbow.
111 Suggestion: Russian Standard Vodka
Candy Corn – Manhattan
A nice play on sweet and bitter, simple as that.
111 Suggestion: Bulleit Rye
Butterfinger – Rusty Nail
While rusty nails and butter fingers might not be the best combination outside of the shaker, it is inside of one. Trust us.
111 Suggestion: Sheep Dip Blended Scotch Whiskey
Mounds/Almond Joy – Gin Martini
Chocolate. Coconut. Botanicals.
