Since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I thought we’d carry-on the festive fun around here. Today, I’m giving you not one but two Halloween inspired cocktails. One is made with pumpkin and the other with blood orange, so as you can imagine, the color of each is perfect.
Let me know if you give them a try!
Bloody Monday Cocktail
To prepare simple syrup & cocktail:
Combine the juice of one blood orange, 1/3 cup maraschino cherry juice, and 1/2 cup of water. In a small pot, bring the ingredients to a boil about 10 minutes, set aside to cool.
In a shaker filled with ice, place all ingredients and shake vigorously until completely chilled and mixed. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a slice of blood orange.

*Optional Note: run it through a strainer before adding the cinnamon stick and serving.
