Happy Halloweek! I feel really really really behind this year – we’ve been so wrapped up in everything engagement + wedding that we’ve barely had a spare second to do anything Halloween-related…including picking out a pumpkin or costumes. We have painted a super-ambitious ceramic haunted house from Michael’s though. Let’s just say it took four of us a few weekends to complete. For the last few years, Mike and I have donned scary masks and gone house-to-house spooking my little cousins and his nonnas since they don’t live too far from him. Last year I attempted to kidnap my youngest cousin Joseph right from his front door (nearly successful), so we’ll have to think of some way to top that this year.
Mike is really obsessed with Halloween for the horror aspect (and the crisp fall air), but my favourite thing about the holiday is the opportunity to find a wicked costume and do fun makeup to go along with it. Many ladies also take the opportunity to unleash their inner temptress, if you will. While my hunting days are over, I will be doing some tempting this Halloween with my new favourite beverage. For the last few years, I’ve been leaning towards ciders instead of beers – it all started with my first Strongbow at the Queen’s Pub. Last week, Meg and I got the chance to try Tempt Cider No. 9 and I may be just a little obsessed. First: the packaging. I want all my adult beverages to come in such a pretty can.
Secondly: it’s delicious. This alcoholic cider from Denmark combines the sweetness of strawberries with a subtle hint of lime-y tartness. We compared it to adult Arizona iced tea. Like most ciders, it tastes best over ice. A 330mL can will run you about 200 calories and it’s extremely easy-drinking.
