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!

  1. Ah, Dia de los Muertos. Sounds so much more elegant than “Halloween”.

    This drink looks pretty tasty, too. I’m definitely intrigued by the fact that you put hot sauce in it! Although I’m not to keen on drinking raw egg whites… but I’m guessing it’s not too noticeable with all the other stuff in it.

  2. This skull is so beautiful, colorful. Very interesting and abstract! I must try this cocktail receipt! Thanks a lot!
