Billy Butcherson Hocus Pocus Cocktail

Thank you for sharing!

This Hocus Pocus cocktail is inspired by Billy Butcherson, Winifred Sanderson’s lover. This sweet Billy Butcherson Hocus Pocus Cocktail can be made into a mocktail as well so the whole family can enjoy it!

Who Was Billy Butcherson?

The first time you see the movie you think Billy is a bad guy. To be real though, most Zombies are. Billy once dated Winifred Sanderson and then cheated on her with Sarah, her sister. Winifred, of course, was not pleased with him so she poisoned him and sewed his mouth shut so he couldn’t expose her secrets in the afterlife. He does seem like he was pretty a sweet guy, not sure how he ended up with Winifred?!?!

When Max, Dani, and Allison are fighting off the Sanderson Sisters in the graveyard scenes Billy actually helps them out and throws insults to Winifred after he cuts the stitches away from his mouth. At the end f the movie, Billy goes back into his grave.

Billy Butcherson is making an appearance in Hocus Pocus 2, streaming on Disney+ starting September 30th. I wonder if he is part of a flashback or if he has to do something else to be resting in peace for eternity.
