7 DEADLY TEXAS BARTENDERS PRESENT 7 DEADLY COCKTAILS

It’s that time of year again for our cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders to create some of the most lucrative Halloween themed drinks for your own bar and party giver’s amusement.

Initially, we had this project planned to go live at the beginning of October but Hurricane Harvey spoiled our plans. Some of these girls were displaced or lost everything they owned but we were fortunate enough to come together and make these tasty treats for you! Some may not have come out the way we planned due to what little resources and material we had after all the chaos, and we walked away with bruises and burn marks. This project took a lot of time and effort, so I hope you can forgive the hiccups. Enjoy.
