Things we love, things we like and things that ruffle our feathers.

A Ghoulish Cocktail

When you’re throwing a holiday gathering, like the horror film viewing party we wrote about in Feather Magazine, it’s more fun if everything has a coinciding theme. It shouldn’t just stop at decorations for your party or choosing movies.

What about your cocktails?

This Halloween-appropriate recipe from Food Network’s Claire Robinson called “Dark and Spooky” is the perfect addition to your drink menu.



  • Black decorating sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime, plus 1 lime wedge
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/4 cup ginger beer or ginger ale
  • 1 black gummy spider


Spread out the black sugar on a small plate. Rub the lime wedge around the rim of a rocks glass; dip the glass in the black sugar, then fill with ice. Combine the rum and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake well. Carefully strain into the glass, minding the sugar on the rim. Top the drink with ginger beer and add the gummy spider.

If you serve this at your Halloween celebrations, send us photos at rufflings@gmail.com or tweet them to @rufflings!
