Celebrated on October 31, Halloween is also known as All Hallows Eve. This is the night before All Saints Day on November 1. At the waning of the year - as the daylight hours grew shorter - they celebrated their festival of "summer's end." The holiday, which is thought of by some to be a Pagan holiday, originated from Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival. The souls of the dead were said to wander on this night - many people didn't want to leave their homes because they were afraid of the dark. They were also afraid of the spirits of the dead who were thought to return for just one night to haunt those who were still alive. In order to leave their homes and blend in with the spirits, people would dress up in costumes so the spirits wouldn't recognize them. Today the tradition of dressing up still lives on. It is one of the biggest party nights of the year. If you plan on throwing a costume party for the holiday, you may want to consider serving pumpkin flavored drinks, drinks inspired by your favorite Halloween treats, a lot of what makes Halloween what it is, is the creation of a spooky atmosphere. Cocktails are no different.
“Daddy-O’s Martini is a perfect complement for Martini in The Morning” said Brad “Martini” Chambers, Chief Creative Officer of the Standard Media Group. “More and more consumers are using music, radio in particular, as their Mood Button. It’s a lifestyle thing,” says Chambers, at the North Hollywood, CA based company that produces the internet radio station MartiniInTheMorning.com. Martini In The Morning’s core product, The Lounge Sound On-Line and On-Air is a fun, up-beat, and hip combination of celebrity interviews and music from today’s contemporary artists to music legends. It is home to the classic yet contemporary coolness of The Great American Songbook.
