The kids may be saying trick or treat and getting all that candy but this Trick And Treat is for adults only! Instead of wasting those precious calories on candy, make this delicious creative fall cocktail! Perfect for sipping while on the veranda, stoop, porch, or where ever you’ll be sitting to hand out your goodies.
