Halloween Drink - The Bone Chiller Halloween with Ghost Peeps

Ghost peeps and a new book from Carol Perry. What could be a better way to prepare for Halloween today on Drinks with Reads...

For folks in Salem Massachusetts, the day after Halloween usually means empty candy wrappers, sagging pumpkins and a community-wide identity crisis. That is until Lee Barrett’s TV production class suggests extending the spooky season with the traditional Mexican celebration, Dia de Los Muertos.

A series of graveyard visits convinces the class that not all of Salem’s dead are resting in peace. Lee and her detective boyfriend, Pete Mondello connect a fresh body with an unsolved missing person case. Driven by a series of chilling visions, Lee calls on her cleverest allies including her shrewd cat, O’Ryan and her tech-savvy Aunt Ibby for help.

Together they go underground and dig up the evidence needed to put a lid on a cold case forever. . .before the latest headstone has Lee’s name on it.


Aunt Ibby is still working on writing her recipe book and she came up with this tasty, if caloric, drink to celebrate the release of Carol’s newest Witch City Mystery—Grave Errors. It’s a candy-loving grown up Trick-or-Treaters dream come true. . . with Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, sugar, a huge dollop of Reddi Wip, topped off with a marshmallow Peep!

1 ¼ cups whole milk
1/3 cup whipping cream
¼ cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
¾ cup vodka
2/3 cup Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
Ice cubes
Ghost Peeps

In a small pitcher or glass measuring cup, combine milk, whipping cream, sugar and vanilla. Stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in vodka and liqueur. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours. To serve, for each drink, put ice cubes in cocktail shaker, add 1/3 to ½ cup of milk mixture. Cover, shake and pour into glass. Top with Reddi Wip and a Ghost Peep.

(Makes six four ounce servings)


  1. Calories or not, the Bone Chiller sounds beyond wonderful. I love the book setting in Salem, MA - another one for the TBR pile!

  2. What a fun drink! You had me at Peeps. Love the concept of the book too.
