More Spirits to Summon this Halloween
Before we continue with the new drinks in our Halloween haunt, I wanted to point out a few previous posts which also lend themselves quite nicely to raising October “spirits”…
Corpse Reviver #2b
Sure, it’s a morning after drink, but depending on how hard you party, the dawn may come sooner than you expect.
Science gone wrong, but a drink gone very, very right.
The official drink of a secret New Orleans society. What more could you ask for on Halloween?
Okay, it’s officially named for a plane. Still, this high-octane martini is all you need to get your party rumbling.
New York Sour
How scary you find the New York Sour probably depends largely on your feelings for the Big Apple; however, the blood red float on the top makes for a tasty sip of the macabre.

You could also include the Algonquin, which is not very scary in name, so be sure to include some Dorothy Parker verse, such as Résumé:
Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren’t lawful;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.
Happy Halloween. More new drinks on the way starting tomorrow plus something special on Friday.
