Halloween is on a Friday night this year which means that partying will go long and late. Well gosh dang'it you've got nothing to worry about because one Scary Mary cocktail the next morning will fix EVERYTHING. Don't believe in "the hair of the dog?" It doesn't matter. This drink will still make you feel better because it's so seriously good. Yes- it's a twist on the traditional Bloody Mary but with more fall spirit than a pumpkin patch. The secret ingredient? California black olives of course, who we partnered with to bring you some dynamite October drinks like this one and the Black Widow Elixir. Can we just talk about how much more fun Halloween is as an adult? Waaaaay more, right?
