Make Halloween festive and fun by serving a Hallow-Rita: Halloween Margarita!

Happy Halloween!!

Who’s ready to trick-or-treat?

I have big bowl of candy ready to go for all the kiddos. Personal favorites: Twix, Snickers and Peanut Butter Cups. OH, and my go-to non-chocolate treat definitely are DOTS. You?

Since it’s Halloween I thought I would take a second to show you a throwback photo of yours truly. What do you think? I rocked that My Little Pony outfit. Also, my brother John is crushing the Transformer look. GAH. The 80’s were the best!

Anyway, I can’t wait to show you our family photo later this evening. Y’all are going to flip. I am having my friend Katie come over early to snap a photo so fingers crossed Juniper will be a willing participant.

Besides dressing up we are having friends over too! My plan is serve this Deathly Hallow Charcuterie, my Ultimate Lamb Chili and these Hallow-Ritas: Halloween Margarita. Take your basic margarita and simply add food coloring. A mixture of red, blue and green will turn your clear margarita into a ghoulish surprise!

I hope y’all have a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Now, say it with: “Trick-or-Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!”

Hallow-Rita: Halloween Margarita


  • 4 oz tequila
  • 2 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • lime wedge
  • lime slices, for garnish
  • 1/2 cup black salt
  • blue food coloring
  • red food coloring
  • green food coloring


  1. In a tumbler combine tequila, triple sec and lime juice. Pour the mixture into a large measuring cup or a bowl that you can easily pour from. Next, add the food coloring (about a drop of each at first). Continue to stir and add colorings until desired mixture is achieved. It took me about three rounds.
  2. Pour the black salt onto a plate. Take the lime wedge and rub it around each glass. Dip the glass into the black salt.
  3. Fill each glass with ice. Pour the margarita mixture into the glass and garnish with fresh lime slices!
