Happy Halloween

Suspiria, 1977

Rosemary's Baby, 1968

While I did not carve any pumpkins this year, I did go to Halloweekend at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, I watched Argento's 1977 Italian horror film Suspiria (by myself!), and I have put together a costume for the first time in years. I am going to be Rosemary Woodhouse from Rosemary's Baby, running around in a baby doll nighty with flats and a pixie wig. I might even be carrying Satan's child wrapped up in a bundle. I have always loved Halloween and the campiness of it all and, as I was looking at photos of pumpkins and caramel apples on line, I regretted not making a bigger deal out of my favorite holiday. Thankfully, there is always next year. Along with candy apples and pumpkin carving I will be serving a version of this Vampire Kiss Martini. Happy Halloween!

Vampire Kiss Martini

1.5 oz chilled vodka
1.5 oz champagne
3/4 oz chambord

Rim a martini glass with red sugar or garnish with raspberry syrup. Pour vodka and Chambord into the glass, top with champagne and pour remaining Chambord over the back of a spoon to make it float. Retract fangs and slurp away.
