Wily Witches Brew

The other day while out shopping I spotted these wonderful bottle labels at Michael's craft stores. They are part of the Martha Stewart Halloween collection and despite whatever opinions you might have of Martha, she loves Halloween and does it right! these labels I couldn't resist!  If you go to Martha's website  you'll find quite a lot of wicked crafts and wonderful themes to incorporate into your Samhain bash. 

My favorite witches brew?  Take a bottle of good (not great) red wine and put it into a saucepan. Warm gently to not quite a boil and add a cinnamon stick, about 1 teaspoon of cloves, one cup of apple cider  and one cup of brandy. Continue to warm for about two more minutes, take pan off of the heat and let cool. Sweeten to taste with a bit of agave nectar, pour into your bottles or a punch bowl and play!
