Happy Hour--Spooky Shots

 I've got some serious fun for you today. I'm sharing a few of my favorite spooky shots perfect for all of the parties that you'll be attending this upcoming Halloween weekend. Halloween is just such a fun holiday.  The decorations are over the top and it seems like everyone really gets into it.  I'm sure that you will all be dressed up in your Halloween finery enjoying a few parties, so why not enjoy some delicious shots to make the night extra special (if you are over 21 that is).  I've made four different shooters, each very different and all delicious--Spider's Poison, Blood Magic, Vampire's Bite, and the Black Widow.

 Spider's Poison
(Looks innocent and tastes amazing-you'll be sorry my pretty.)

 Blood Magic
(A dark, deep red perfect for a casting a little spell.)

 Vampire's Bite
(Bright red and spicy, perfect for Dracula's bite.)

 Black Widow
(Dark, beautiful, and deadly-you'll only have a few.)

Yield: 1-3 ounce shot each
