Come cheers
with Chelsea!

Take a peek inside my life as I stir in a little spooky, shake up some cocktail fun and garnish it with the parenting wiles of a little monster and boo.

Hang out in my web and join me in a toast to cobwebs, cocktails and motherhood.

  • The Torn Prince Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Torn Prince Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    Today’s cocktail is inspired by the Absolut Boston Home Run recipe with my own special twist. The Torn Prince was a baseball star who was taken too soon in a car racing incident. I’ve made his cocktail more bitter with the  juice choice as an ode to the bitter swift end of his little slugger […]

  • The Withered Lover Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Withered Lover Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Withered Lover is the ghost responsible for inspiring me to want to create the Dark Zodiac Cocktails. I knew what drink I wanted to make for this ghost quite a few months ago. Inspiration from the only kind and gentle ghost of the Dark Zodiac, the Withered Lover is the ghost of a loving […]

  • The Bound Woman Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Bound Woman Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The cocktail choice for this particular ghost was a little bit of a challenge. I wanted something flirty (since that is what brought about this ghost’s demise) but not too sweet or whimpy. This ghost was very self-centered and vain  and I wanted a cocktail that also reflected this. I feel like egg white drinks […]

    Elvira’s Macabrenet

    I am going to be on my Halloween wine game this year! Just you watch! I’ve bought my wine, have cute Halloween wine pourers to complement each bottle and they’re at the ready to be tasted.

  • The Torso Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Torso Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    Continuing on with our Dark Zodiac Cocktails, today’s recipe is for the Torso. Inspired by the ghost of a gambler who made a bet with a deadly pay out, this Gin drink got some inspiration from a cocktail called “The Bronx Ain’t So Sweet”. The Torso [amd-yrecipe-recipe:9] What choice would you have made for the […]

  • Rest In Peace Pinot Grigio

    Rest In Peace Pinot Grigio

    I am going to be on my Halloween wine game this year! Just you watch! I’ve bought my wine, have cute Halloween wine pourers and they’re at the ready to be tasted. Today for your tasting pleasure, we are trying a label I’ve tasted during a previous Halloween season, but a different varietal. Sit back […]

  • The First Born Son Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The First Born Son Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    I love watching scary movies. But I get really scared of scary movies too. It’s a vicious cycle. However, I’m pretty particular about my scary films. They have to have some sort of supernatural element. I cannot stand serial killers, psychopaths or slashers. Now give me a good ghost story and I’m all yours. One […]

  • The Crypt-Kicker Five

    The Crypt-Kicker Five

    Even if you’re not as infatuated with Halloween as I am, it’s  still very likely that you have heard the unyielding classic Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett. Even though it feels like you start to skip the song every time it comes on halfway through October, it still remains a personal favorite of mine. […]

  • My Closet Full of Halloween

    My Closet Full of Halloween

    It’s always been a dream of mine to have a spooky themed outfit for each day of October where I was donning the spirit from head to toe. To be honest, I haven’t yet reached that goal, but I do have quite the collection of Halloween-influenced attire that I’m able to swap around quite efficiently […]

  • Dell’Osso Family Farms Corn Maze 2018

    Dell’Osso Family Farms Corn Maze 2018

    It’s a big tradition of mine and my hubby to make it out to a corn maze every year together. This year we made the visit even more special by taking our little monster for the first of what will hopefully be many. We started the day a little later than planned, but we took […]

  • Putting Out The Halloween Tree

    Putting Out The Halloween Tree

    I’m excited to place the Halloween Tree back out this year! What do you think of it’s new home? I’m hoping we can also replace the frames we use for our passed loved ones. The ones we have were just cheapo ones we bought for our wedding and I really want ones that fit the […]
