A group of my closest friends get together for an annual beauty swap. This year they are coming over to my house for a Trick or Treat Beauty themed party. I have a lot of samples and full-size beauty products so I decided to give them each a bag of 5-6 products and then they trade like we used to do as kids with our Trick or Treat candy on Halloween. That way everyone gets what they really want and we can talk beauty over cocktails and Halloween treats.
I’m serving Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate Witches Brew. I simply mixed the Smirnoff Sorbet Light with light cranberry-apple juice, a splash of soda and sweetened lime juice.
When I entertain I like to make things easy so I have time to spend with my guests. I found many of the classic Halloween treats like taffy apples, popcorn balls and candy corn. Beer steins are a perfect display for candy, and I used margarita glasses to show off the beautiful color of my Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate Witches Brew. I found sour apple candy straws which make it fun to stir the drink (and eat!). All of the treats I served were low fat, but I also offered air popped popcorn and fresh apples in case any of my friends were in an extra healthy mood. But why not indulge in a few sweets when the cocktail is light and reduced calorie?
