Coinciding with Halloween is the Day of the Dead, an annual holiday celebrated in Mexico to honor loved ones who have passed on. Traditional elements of a Day of the Dead celebration include candied sugar skulls, beautiful floral crowns and lots of vivid colors. While everyone’s talking about Halloween, my friends from His & Hers Weddings are here sharing a fun Calavera Cocktail recipe inspired by the Day of the Dead. (Calavera is the Spanish word for sugar skulls!) Made with tequila, grenadine and garnished with a hint of chili powder, this drink is a little sweet and a little spicy… just how we like it 😉 Scroll below for the recipe and more photos from the shoot!
