DRINKS TO DIE FOR

Oliver Coningham’s recommendations for the perfect Halloween drinks

For many people Halloween is the first significant holiday since Easter, with the exception of perhaps the summer solstice or various bank holidays. On numerous levels it formally marks the end of lighter, warmer months as we transition into the darker, colder part of the year. Our evenings now take the form of a modern human hibernation as we sit aside roaring woodburners or are enveloped by the warmth of our central heating, devouring bowls of soothing comfort food.

Halloween has become a gateway to this change in our habits at this time of year. It is of no surprise then that it traditionally represents a time of change or transition. Behind the masks, tricks and treats it was traditionally seen as a point in which to venerate the dead. Whether it’s All Saints’ Day, the Christian festival celebrated to honour holy saints, or the Celtic festival of Samhain where ancestors are revered and the veil between the worlds of the dead and the living is said to be at its thinnest. It can be seen as a dark and brooding time or one that recognises and celebrates both the cycles of nature and of life itself.

About Vegan Life

Every morning I sit down at my desk with an almond milk Earl Grey (in my red starry mug) and read emails, press releases and the latest news. It continues to amaze me that so much of what I read in the mainstream media is relevant to veganism. Negative articles about vegans and veganism seem to be diminishing to be replaced with pieces highlighting the benefits to the environment, animal welfare and our health. The number of businesses embracing compassion and removing animal products from their products, as well as making sure they are cruelty-free, is astounding. With this in mind, we have brought you a business feature which I am really excited about. We have spoken to Stephanie Redcross who founded a vegan marketing, consulting and coaching company to advise entrepreneurs and professionals about how to run their businesses without compromising their core values. There has been an explosion of small vegan enterprises over the last few years and there are still so many gaps in the market — if you have an idea for a vegan product or service which you want to make a reality, this feature is perfect for you. We have also noticed that the number of people taking part in animal tourism has increased recently. You may have seen pictures of people visiting swimming pigs in the Bahamas and with the clear sparkling water and cloudless blue skies you would be forgiven for thinking that this looked like paradise. Unfortunately, these pigs do not live the life of luxury that you may expect and it is so sad, though not surprising, that in 2017 tourism still exploits animals for commercial gain. Finally, we have some incredible recipes for you in this issue including a personal favourite, scones with cream and jam, and a whole host of fun Halloween recipes which you can make with your kids or, if you’re a big kid like me, for yourself! Have a happy Halloween and make sure you stock up on some vegan sweets for those trick or treaters!
