I know what you’re thinkin’: Halloween was last month! Geez! But follow, drinkers: Halloween is Gay Christmas, and like Christmas, it needs more like 12 days to celebrate, not one (heck, we even do the parade and the costume party on separate nights!). So, here are a few more fun concoctions. And remember: You can’t spell “devilish” without “delish.”
