trick and treat: Practical Magic

It's September. You know what that means? Time for Fall, pumpkin spice everything, Halloween and scary movie marathons! Also, time for my favorite- Trick and Treat! In case you're new around here, this is where I watch a scary movie and eat/drink some sort of themed treat. I watch all these movies every year anyway- so it's just a little extra fun to have a special treat along with the viewing. You can see past Trick and Treats here. Now, lets get started...

For my first "scary" movie of the season I give you Practical Magic. Scare factor: none. Well, there is, like, one resurrection and a seance but it's not bad. I enjoy this movie for the atmosphere of magic and whimsy. It's light and romantic, with some good Sandra Bullock cries. For my treat: Midnight Margaritas! 

eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat and tongue of dog (just kidding)
3 oz tequila
splash of triple sec
2 oz lime juice
1 oz simple syrup

Shake over ice and pour into a chilled glass rimmed with salt.


  1. i'm so excited for fall too! that is the best kind of margarita in my opinion... no sugary mixes!

    1. Oh yeah! They taste so much better when you make them from scratch.

  2. Autumn / Fall is my second favourite month, after Spring. I'm quite excited! :)

    Have a great week!
