Happy Halloween from The Crafty Gentleman

Okay, hands up who’s got a slightly sore head from the Halloween festivities last night?! My Halloween cocktail party was awesome, the drinks went down really well and we all had a great time. 🙂 That’s that for another year!

But before we say goodbye to Halloween, let’s have a quick look back at the past month on The Crafty Gentleman…

The BIG news of the month was my exciting partnership with Innocent smoothies, to help raise awareness of their Big Knit charity initiative. Read all about it, here.

I shared my recipes for pumpkin spiced rum, Souls of the Damned cocktail and I worked with Pact Coffee to create a tasty espresso martini. Just because Halloween is over, doesn’t mean it’s too late to give the recipes a try!

And finally, I shared a sneak peek into my trip to Copenhagen (more on that next week), as well as a sneak peek into my Halloween party planning. I can’t believe it’s over!

PHEW, October has been an exceptionally busy month. I’ve absolutely loved it, but I am secretly glad that I can have a bit of a rest now! I hope you’ve had a great start to the autumn too. 🙂 – Mike
