Dainty Obsessions

{Dainty Extra} Spooky Spirits

They all taste like candy, because why not during Halloween time?

We pulled up a stool at Elements at 8th in the Hilton Garden Inn Sioux Falls Downtown for some haunted libations. Restaurant manager Logan Bengtson and bartender Marcus Mollberg created three ghoulish martinis to try at your Halloween affair this week.
