Boos + Booze Blog

Halloween boos + booze


You can’t spell “booze” without “Boo!” At least that’s the mantra around here at Grub Burger Bar this October. As All Hallow’s Eve creeps nearer and nearer, we can’t help but get in the spooky spirit. So spooky we’re nearly shaking.

Speaking of shaking, our boozy shakes are also getting in on the Halloween spirit this year. We’ve even heard them around the office chatting about what costumes they’ll be wearing for the holiday. They’re always up to something, those boozy shakes! Normally we don’t partake in spoilers (we’re still mad someone ruined Homeland for us), but we’re too excited not to share.

Tipsy Worms & Dirt

Costume: Tipsy Count Chocula.

It only makes sense for Tipsy Worms & Dirt to go as one of his heroes. He’ll adorn his finest black cape and count things he sees all night, starting with the scoops of ice cream that go inside him. One scoop, two scoops, three scoops, four!

DIY This Shake: If you were hoping to recreate this shake at home for a fun Halloween-themed treat (no tricks about it), all you need is some chocolate vodka, crushed Oreos and gummy worms, plus your typical shake ingredients (ice cream and/or milk). But don’t be alarmed if it isn’t as good as ours. We’re sort of pros at shake-makin’.

Boozy Mint Chocolate Chip

Costume: A Parisian.

What can we say? Boozy Mint Chocolate Chip is obsessed with all things France. She’ll have the beret, the red scarf and striped shirt, the baguette and glass of wine — everything. Since all of her ingredients are French (creme de cacao and creme de menthe), it only makes sense.

DIY This Shake: Just blend together vodka, creme de cacao, creme de menthe, Andes mints, ice cream and milk and voilà!

Bourbon & Caramel

Costume: A bootlegger.

He’s obsessed with Boardwalk Empire and other Prohibition-era gangsters. When he’s not at Grub, he’s probably at the local speakeasy wetting his whistle. No surprises here.

DIY This Shake: In case you were wondering what goes into our Bourbon & Caramel shake… well… come on now. You can figure that one out.

ET Drunk Dial

Costume: E.T.

We know, we know. Duh, right? He’s an odd duck, that E.T. Drunk Dial. Halloween is his favorite holiday, simply because he can wrap a white blanket around his head, sit in a milk carton box and say “E.T. phone home” all day long. We’re starting to worry about him…

DIY This Shake: This is a fun one. Chocolate vodka, Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter, chocolate and a peanut butter cookie + ice cream and milk. Goes well with jelly. Doesn’t go well with peanut allergies.

Dirty Kitchen Sink

Costume: A French maid.

The Dirty Kitchen Sink gets a little self-conscious about being called “dirty” all the time, so her costumes always err on the side of clean. While the maid part was her idea, we think the French part was Boozy Mint Chocolate Chip’s idea…

DIY This Shake: We’d say “Don’t try this at home,” but we know no one follows that advice. You may need a grocery store run for this one. Chocolate vodka, pretzels, peanut butter, salt, butterscotch sauce, caramel sauce, chocolate chips, coffee grounds and potato chips. Oh my!

Think you can top those costumes? Bring it on. More specifically, bring it on into your nearest Grub Burger Bar. Our boozy shakes are dying to see you. Mwahahaha! Happy Halloween!
