Halloween Cocktail: The Jack-O-Lantern

Halloween for Grownups

When Jason Dobrowner of Thirsty Scientist, a Los Angeles-based bar/mixology service, contacted us with two inventive Halloween cocktails, we jumped at the chance to share them with you! Here's the first — stay tuned for another spooky cocktail from Jason next week!

Kick start the holiday season with the Jack-O-Lantern, a Manhattan with hints of pumpkin, apples, and fall spices. With the blend of spiced apple cider, pumpkin puree, and Jack Daniels, the Jack-O-Lantern is great for either cozying up next to a fire or starting your wild Halloween night.
