Halloween time > pumpkin carving, trick or treating, costumes, candy and spooky cocktails…yes, fun adult Halloween cocktails. We have a cocktail for you that is fun to make (pop rocks on the rim already!), light and not too sweet (so it goes well with your Halloween candy of choice :-)  Oh and a couple of fun facts: Blood oranges are less acidic than regular oranges. And that distinctive dark red/orange flesh? Well that’s due to the presence of antioxidant pigments so yeah, you can have a Pop Rock Blood Orange Martini and feel good about the fact that you are getting your antioxidants. Nice. And yep, that’s why you’re drinking it. Sure.
