.5 oz Mia Amata maro
.5 oz kahlua
2 dashes oranges bitters
Garnished with a house made boozy cherry and orange peel pumpkin
EAST VAN ROASTERS
East Van Roasters is bringing you the Witches Brew. It looks weird, we know.
But guess was, it's DELICIOUS and we strongly recommend you trying it if you're not looking for a boozie drink. If you're trying to warm up from the cooler weather, it's great way to stay festive and chill out on Halloween.
This hot cocoa mix is made with their stone-ground Ecuadorian chocolate topped with a dash of charcoal and charmed with brainy house-made strawberry-swirled marshmallows for a scary-delicious combination.
STRAIGHT & MARROW
Who wants to drink some brains?
Yup, Straight & Marrow has a horrific cocktail that's not for the faint of heart... we're kidding.
It's a three rum blend, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and so much more. Who thought a drink could look so terrifying, sound exotic, and taste so refreshing?
