October is full of holidays worthy of celebratory cocktails. Start the month with a Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate and end it with all things Halloween!It might be cliché, but I can’t believe it is already October. Halloween party planning is already in full swing. Leaves have been dropping from trees for weeks now. I am just not ready for winter. Just thinking about the cold that will blow through shortly makes me want to curl up in a blanket in front of the fire with a nice boozy hot chocolate.

Since it’s here we might as well enjoy all that October 2017 brings us, including liquor related holidays and those holidays we can celebrate with a relevant drink.
