Liquid Kitchen® Presents The Green Ghoul

Halloween is a great time to catch up on your craft skills. Not only are there costumes to be made, decorations to be hung, and ghoulish makeup to be perfected, you can also have some fun with your edible cocktail garnishes, too. Try stuffing lychees with green maraschino cherries for an eerie eyeball effect. If you don’t have a lot of time to make garnishes on the spot, these are great to make ahead of time and will quickly turn any cocktail into a frightening one.
