Make Morality Taste Good With This Good and Evil Cocktail

Good, evil; lemons, limes; Midori, Apple Pucker -- there's a reason that this cocktail from the boys at DrinksMadeEasy is called "Good and Evil," not "Good or Evil". We're hoping you're a good person already, so we won't ask you to make any taxing, morality-related decisions right this second (save those for your Halloween costume -- are you going to dress up as a hero or a villain this year?), but we are suggesting that you give this tasty recipe a spin. It's totally worth a sip, and all that tangy citrus, refreshing melon, and crisp apple flavor is sure to liven up your next Halloween party (not to mention vodka, which tends to be the catalyst behind most great and/or terrible life choices).
