For every bottle of Tito's Handmade Vodka sold through Minibar Delivery beginning today through Sunday, Tito's Handmade Vodka will donate $1 to CORE (up to $5000).
POTLUCK PEAR PUNCH

Mix ingredients together over ice in a copper mule mug. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and apple slices.
Happy Halloween! Whether you're ordering spooky spirits or hallow-wine, we'll be at your door—no tricks.
Remember, if you got it, haunt it.
Halloween is tomorrow! Try this fun and easy DIY project for your Halloween party.
Pumpkin kegs look great and are a total hit with any crowd. Plus, they infuse any good fall beer with a hint of pumpkin flavor. And that's just cool.
What you'll need:
- Plastic drink spout
- Large knife
- Good vibes
Cut out a circular top and scoop out the pumpkin with a large spoon on your hands. (Be careful not to cut through the bottom)
Drill a hole in the pumpkin 2/3 of the way down and insert your drink spout. Be sure to secure it from the inside.

2) Peanut M&Ms + Chardonnay
The nutty crunch of a Peanut M&M complements and contrasts a smooth, oaky chardonnay.
Minibartender Recommendation: 14 Hands Chardonnay
3) Starburst + Rosé
Go with red and pink Starburst (those are the best ones anyway) to bring out the rich, red fruit flavors in a light rosé.
Minibartender Recommendation: Whispering Angel Rosé
4) Snickers + Cabernet Sauvignon
The stereotype of cabernet pairing well with chocolate exists for a reason...a great reason. A big, bold cab can be rounded out with a rich chocolate, making Snickers the best bar to go with your bottle.
Minibartender Recommendation: William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
5) Skittles + Sauvignon Blanc
The sweetness of “the rainbow” brightens the subtle fruity notes in a dry wine like sauvignon blanc.
Minibartender Recommendation: Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc
6) Gummy Bears + Sparkling Rosé
Gummy and bubbly textures make fun contrast for the fruity compliments between the candy and the wine.
Minibartender Recommendation: Veuve Clicquot Rosé
7) Twix + Grenache
The subtle cinnamon flavor of Grenache pairs perfectly with Twix’s cookie crunch.
Minibartender Recommendation: Honoro Vera Grenache

Why does dressing up for Halloween have to only include a costume? Add some flair to your bottles for that finishing spooky touch!
First, pick a bottle that has packaging all around its base. Freixenet is a great canvas with its all black, matte packaging. It's also a sparkling wine we can get behind—it has notes of crisp apple and pear and is a great price point for bubbly.
Next, use markers that are permanent and metallic so that they really pop off the canvas. We used Bic Mark It Metallic Markers.
Now, go wild with your creativity. Make something spooky or something that matches your costume.
Get inspired by some of these Freixenet creations:
