It’s Fall! Who’s Ready for Halloween?!

And just like that, it’s FALL, y’all! While I may be grieving summer just a smidge (did it go by faster than usual this year or am I just too busy to notice seasons anymore??), I do LOVE this time of year in the Northeast. Clothes get pretty cable knit-y, the early evening light through the trees gets very romantical, and everything gets super cozy around these parts. And one of the best things about this season? Halloween! As I mentioned a few months back, Fresh Direct, the local online grocer that delivers fresh and prepared food to your door, has made the game-changing move to include booze in their inventory. And they’ve been busy bees since then. They’ve since added some incredible mixers and bitters to their line-up. To celebrate some of these Bit by a Fox faves getting picked up by our fave online grocer, I created some Halloween inspired cocktails just for them! But they can be just for you too. Check it out!
