Halloween is a time for ghosts, for vampires, for costumes, and lets face it… for cocktails. As you get older Halloween gets less about trick or treating (they wouldn’t give you any candy anyway) and more about dressing up and having a good time with your friends.
Now, you probably don’t want to be drinking blood this Halloween, but you can definitely still have spooky themed cocktails that will put you in the holiday spirit. Here at Santa Fe Spirits we wanted to take a look at some fun cocktails that we could put our own twist on while keeping them delicious.
This cocktail is based on a classic, the Whiskey Sour
You will need:
Fresh Lemon Juice
Fresh Lime Juice
In a pint glass combine 2 ounces of Colkegan Whiskey, half a fresh squeezed lemon, half a fresh squeezed lime, and a dash of orange juice. Shake over ice and pour into a rocks glass. Drip cherry syrup down the sides of the glass for a spooky (and sweet) addition to this Halloween themed classic.
The Candied Apple
You will need:
Salted Cream Caramel Simple Syrup
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Combine 2 ounces of Apple Brandy and 2 ounces of simple syrup in a pint glass and shake over ice. Serve up in a martini glass with a pumpkin pie spice sugar rim.
To make the simple syrup combing equal parts cream caramel sauce and boiling water in a pint glass and stir to dissolve. Add sea salt until you reach a salted caramel taste you like.
