Happy Halloweeeeeeeen (insert creepy voice)… this is my favorite holiday. Yes, because of the candy. Now shut up.
I often get distracted by shiny things, and this drink was no exception. Any, ANY reason to use a glow stick and I’m in.
There’s a little more than my usual # of carbs in this drink, and that’s entirely due to the Hypnotiq liqueur. That stuff is really damn good and that’s because it’s got a SHIT TON of sugar in it. I wanted to use it for the flavor & amazing color, so I just cut the amount I used to keep the suger content lower. I also decided to cut the diet Sprite & add some sparkling water and lemon (acid) to balance the sweetness of the drink because I found that 4 oz of diet Sprite was just too sweet for me. You can play around with amounts of everything to find the right balance for your palate.
