It’s been a frightful year, and it’s time to break out the costumes, gather a few friends and create a few cocktails to celebrate Halloween. St. Petersburg Distillery has crafted some creative libations to celebrate in good spirit. Stop by No Vacancy for the Mojito from the Black Lagoon, while the Harvest Steam Cider is being served at Club 201 – both in downtown St. Petersburg. These bewitching cocktails can also be made at home with the liquor purchased and picked up at the St. Petersburg Distillery pop-up market store.
