Out of all the Halloween moves there are, the Frankenstein ones are my favorite. From Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to the oh so cheesy but awesome Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks. One of my favorites is The Bride of Frankenstein. Her hair alone is just so fantastic. So for my last Halloween cocktail for Cost Plus World Market this week for their Book of Life sweepstakes promotion I knew I wanted to create a cocktail in honor of her, plus World Market had some awesome Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein Halloween products in the store that I needed to own. I just love the color of this vanilla blackberry champagne cocktail. So very Halloween.
I LOVE that World Market has these trays with photos of the original Frankenstein’s Monster and Bride of Frankenstein from the 1930s. Those were the best films. I highly suggest watching them if you haven’t. They really don’t make movies like they used to. I love old black and white films from the 30s and 40s. So fun, so cheesy but so great because they didn’t have all the computers that they have today for special effects. It was all props and editing reels of film by hand which is such tedious and time consuming work, and yet, the movies are just so awesome.
