TRICK OR TREAT — YOU DECIDE
I love handing out candy on Halloween. In our neighborhood, everyone gets into the spirit. Even the
parents will dress up and walk around with their kids as they run up to each house and say “Trick or Treat!” and then after I give them candy, I can hear some parents yell out “Say thank you!” The other day, I got to thinking about how life plays a sort of “trick or treat” game with us.

You can spice up your drink with pepper to mimic the Aztecs, or make a 21-and-up version by adding a shot of peppermint schnapps and whipped cream.
