In the good old days, after I’d convinced my children that I had to do a ‘safety check’ on their Hallowe’en haul after they’d gone off to bed, I would then sit down with my favourite adult beverage in hand, and ruthlessly comb through, selecting the best goodies for myself.
This effort, however, would have been wasted unless I had at least attempted to pair afore-mentioned goodies thoughtfully with appropriate bevvies. Good thing I am no slouch when it comes to ‘doing the right thing’.
So, to pass along these tips to the next generation of today’s young parents, I’ve put together the following for your Hallowe’en 2020 evening, focusing on some of the more ‘classic’ treats you may find at the bottom of the pillowcase.
How low can 2020 go? ‘Liberating’ the candy and pairing it just seems like the right thing to do given the circumstances. Remember that if all else fails, Gin or Vodka Martinis go with absolutely everything. And good luck getting this done before the kids wake up.
