Halloween is the one of the oldest holidays still celebrated today. Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of “Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. For them the night of October 31 marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death.

We also want to celebrate the “Night of the Living Dead” and that’s why we have created a special cocktails collection (available at Atelier until 31 October). You can find the recipes below, enjoy and make them at home, It’s easy!
