Witches, wizards and sorcerers.
Vampires and fairies.
Werewolves and shape-shifters.
We’ll take any and all here at The Chic as we’re huge fans of paranormal books. Be it a novel, comics, TV or movies we’re all about being transported to a magical world where the supernatural reign and the possibilities seem limitless.
With new sassy shows like the Witches of East End popping up on Lifetime and Halloween just around the corner, I was inspired to make a witches brew cocktail. This new series is based on a novel by Melissa de la Cruz… who also wrote one heck of a YA vampire novel series called Blue Bloods if you’re looking for some brain candy.
It’s difficult not to become intrigued by magical powers, curses and spells. Especially with the Halloween spirit in the air, I can’t help but be lured into the series. The Witches of East End revolves around four witches, but more importantly it displays the unbreakable bonds between mothers, daughters and sisters.
Throughout the series, you’ll see the Beauchamp witches mix together potions and spells. Why not throw together your own concoction to enjoy while you watch the show?
I noticed Joanna and Wendy made a glass of absinthe on the pilot episode. I’m not the biggest fan of the green fairy, as it’s a bit too strong for my taste. Instead I made this tasty witches brew cocktail! Cheers!
