The Code Orange Cocktail

Chelsea’s Tasting & Mixology Notes

  • I love this. It’s so light and fresh. Perfect for enjoying after a Halloween hunting session.
  • It’s a little more on the sweeter side, but in a good way.
  • The sparkling lemonade really adds depth to the flavors.
  • Can be mixed in your glass or in a cocktail shaker. If you mix in your glass, be sure to stir well to thoroughly mix the drink.

Code Orange Substitutes

Erick and Chelsea discussed fun substitutes to Halloween shopping (especially for those of us who might find things a little tight this year) which is also known as code orange hunting. Our goal was to remind you that you don’t have to buy all the stuff to enjoy the season and we hope our discussion captured that.

Essentially, our thoughts on this are: do what helps you capture those Halloween vibes best. And if you just so happen to be sipping on one of our cocktails while doing it, that’s a bonus!

Alternative Ways to Celebrate Without Focusing on Shopping

The following are some of the suggestions covered in the episode as ways to change up or add to your Halloween Celebrations.

  • Shopping with Halloween-themed small businesses
  • Considering Things to Make vs Things to Buy
  • Attending Autumn events, festivals and attractions
  • Visiting historic landmarks, graveyards and libraries
  • Tapping into older traditions by doing at-home activities
