October snuck up on us like a zombie in the night... Except, you know, faster.

It feels like just yesterday we were sipping rosé and shaking up summer cocktails. But, suddenly, we find ourselves picking apples and celebrating Oktoberfest. Yes, fall is officially in full swing, and Halloween will be here before you know it.

We'll have lots of spooktacular inspiration coming your way in the next few weeks leading up to the 31st. Tasty treats, cute costumes, and kooky crafts (oh my!). We thought we'd kick off the frightfully fun festivities with a scary-awesome Saturday Sips, aptly named the "The Spook-Eye."

All eyes on this delicious drink recipe, below!

5 dashes bitters
½ lime juiced
2 oz. citrus vodka
1 oz. green sour apple schnapps
Fill ginger beer

How fun are those eye ping-pong balls? They’re from Party City—as are the gold-rimmed tumblers. Naturally, they've got everything you could ever need or want to throw a fabulous H-ween soiree. The best thing is that you can also use these eyeballs in your kids’ morning orange juice too. Let me just tell you, they will get a kick out of that it in the morning!

Ah, yes, October is here... and welcome to Halloween central at TSM.
