It wouldn’t be Halloween here in Salem, MA if we weren’t drinking some kind of goofy, seasonal cocktail.

This year, it’s the Spooky S’mores Martini, which by accident (ok, not by accident) turned into a FLAMING martini. We garnished them with Halloween-themed Peeps.

I mean, when you garnish something with a giant marshmallow, you kind of have to light it up. (If you know me, you know how I love fire. <3) The sugar-coated Peeps don’t burn quite as well as your average, run-of-the-mill marshmallow, but I’ll take it for the drama alone. Improvise as you will!

Light ’em up

If you’re so inclined, hit the marshmallows with a torch or lit match to crisp them up for a few seconds. Caution: Be sure to blow the fire out before it comes remotely close to touching the glass.

Fancy a warmer drink?

Check out our Harvest Pumpkin Steamer, which got some love from NYC’s illustrious Gothamist this week. (Thanks, guys!) We like to spike this hot pumpkin drink with a little spiced rum. Think liquid pumpkin pie.

  1. To get better fire on the peeps, maybe a quick soak in vodka or rum? I’d think it would burn on the surface without caramelizing the sugar, but maybe it works to burn the sugar a little prettier.
