Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite Disney Halloween movies! The Sanderson sisters have such a fun time running amuck trying to live forever. Add some additional fun to your Halloween with this sweet cocktail!
Ingredients used in this cocktail
- Pineapple Juice
- Orange Juice
- Gold Rum. Gold rum has been aged in wooden casks for some period of time which gives the spirit its signature color and sweeter, richer flavor.
- Apple Brandy. Apple brandy, historically known as applejack, is America’s original spirit.
- Blue Curaçao. Blue Curaçao has a distinct taste that is a little bit bitter and a little bit sweet. Its’ flavor comes from the peel of the Laraha citrus fruit (which has been dried) and is grown on the island of Curaçao, hence the name. (source: The Kitchen Magpie)
- Silver Cake Shimmer. This is optional but makes the drink magical and spooky!
