Friday Wellness Tip: Witches Brew Spanista Style

Dear Wellness Seekers,

Friday Wellness Tip: Witches Brew Spanista Style is a way to bring in Halloween night with a wink and a smile. How wonderful that this fantastical event happens on Friday so we can ease into the weekend by celebrating in what ever fashion we desire. This year we will spend a family evening together trick or treating in the neighborhood.

The girls I am with tonight love witches as much as I do. We all attribute this to one of our favorite family movies we all grew up with – The Wizard of Oz.


Spanista Glamorous Witch and Witches Brew Bottle Compliments of Sandi Brown.

Just for the fun of it the adult Witch in me has a few cravings of her own – perhaps a bit more refined than a chocolate bar in plastic wrap. After we return tonight I plan on enjoying my style of Witches Brew I concocted – you will find the special ingredients were inspired with the help of non other than William Shakespeare and his famous poem from Macbeth!!! While creating the brew this pretty little witch fashionable dressed in purple lame made certain I measured and stirred to recipe.


Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the caldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,

Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon’s blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.

NOTES: Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38

Post Trick or Treating: After the walking the neighborhood with the kids it is time for some Spanista personal fun. Time for Spanista Witches Brew Menu – Adults Only’ cause it is just too scary! Add these great dark chocolate treats to this CranPom Sparkling Cocktail. (Love the color!)  Mini’s deserts are great fun as you can enjoy a few for the calorie price of one piece of cake and tonight is a night to indulge and be happy with a Raspberry Mouse, gourmet cupcakes and bon bons.
