Halloween Chic: The Green-Eyed Monster Martini

At Halloween, I don’t mind finding an eyeball in my martini—as long as it’s made from lychee and blueberries. I actually find them quite delicious. Serve this cocktail up alongside an apothecary glass of extra eyeballs for a great mad scientist effect. And is it any surprise that the Green-Eyed Monster comes out when I’m strutting around in my Bad Sandy costume?

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
