So what is there to look forward to? Halloween, obviously. The night, which occurs right around the time when we are reminded how bitterly cold Boston is, where we can all dress up and forget the impending winter. Here are two delicious cocktails from Vampyre Vodka, that will spice up any Halloween party.
