My round of Halloween cocktails continues with a Bone Dry Martini! Truthfully, it's just a dry martini with a little skeleton hanging out in the glass, but here's the wonderful thing about creating holiday-themed cocktails: you don't have to recreate the wheel. One thing that scares people when it comes to theme parties, or simply adding a festive touch, is that they are afraid it will be too hard.
So get that cocktail shaker out (or stir stick) and whip up a James Bond-worthy martini, toss in a skeleton, and get in the spirit of the season!
Oh, and don't forget the garlic-stuffed green olives. Because #vampires.
