It's Friday. Who needs a cocktail? Consider this blackberry brew my weekend gift to you. The cocktail's bold color and bourbon punch match the spooky and sophisticated All Hallows Eve dinner party details revealed yesterday. I cannot fathom that Halloween is only two weeks away; so let's get planning and partying already, people. Make the guest list, grab your proper West Elm props, and pour yourself one of these in the meantime!
Stay tuned for a first course and entreé reveal early next week.
