If you're like me and don't like the taste of alcohol, but would love to have that warm tingly and light feeling associated with it, then Alize is your drink! It's a flavored brandy with about 16% alcohol and comes in two delicious flavors - Passion Fruit and the Red Passion, both tantalizing the taste buds. The liquer can either be mixed with something else or drunken on it's on. Usually I like to mix it with something else.

Toss the bag of candy aside, Halloween is no longer just for kids! Whether out to trick or treat, Alize Liqueur has a variety of scary cocktails perfect for your gruesome festivities. These vodka-based concoctions will definitely make those scary stories more frightening and your costume parties more fun. From Devil's Punch to the Mad Scientist Sangria, Alize offers a drink fit to be enjoyed by every ghoul and ghost. Muah ha ha!!!
