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. Jack-O-Lantern makes one cocktail 1.5 oz Jack Daniels 1.5 oz spiced apple cider 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree 1 tablespoon maple syrup 1 dash cinnamon Nutmeg, for garnish Cinnamon stick, for garnish Mix all ingredients in martini shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds and pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon stick.
