The My Drunk Kitchen folks may have had a bit to drink before carving pumpkins, but all that sloshed cooking has made them surprisingly functional. That said, "knives" + "alcohol" is rarely a smart combination.

What better way to celebrate Halloween than a pumpkin filled with alcohol? Let me guess: you were just on autopilot and you were going to carve Ecce Homo into your pumpkin this year? Well think again!

The weekend's here, and that means it's time for all those Halloween parties to kick off! Make sure you get lots of candy and/or booze (depending on how old you are, A12 encourages you to respect legal drinking ages if you want to all the time), click through the gallery, and have a happy Halloween!
