American Way Magazine: Halloween Hooch

American Way Magazine: Halloween Hooch

sip on spirited cocktails at these stories haunts

On a recent American Airlines flight, I grabbed a copy of American Way Magazine and found a fun article written by Amber Gibson titled Halloween Hooch. The article featured 5 bars nationwide where you can enjoy spooky (see what I did there?) cocktails and a recipe for a drink that sounds delicious. The drink is called Redrum Punch. This drink contains:

  • 2 ounces Brugal Anejo Rum
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce grenadine
  • ¼ ounce Cherry Heering
  • Dash of Angostura bitters

Shake and strain over ice. Garnish with a Luxardo maraschino cherry.

Doesn’t that sound delicious? The drink seems simple enough, but I would prefer to have a mixologist make it for me. I am never very good at making cocktails like that.

Like I said, the article was about these bars, and I wouldn’t do this blog post justice if I didn’t at least mention them. So, here you go:

  • No Name Saloon & Grill Park City, Utah
  • Notch8 Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Palm Coast Asheville, North Carolina
  • Old Glory Nashville, Tennessee
  • The Stanley Hotel Estes Park, Colorado

I’ve not been to any of these bars, but I am sure Amber picked them for a reason. Some of them look pretty great, so I will make sure to visit these if I find myself in these cities in the near future. I really need to visit Nashville, so I expect that will be first on the list.

Regardless, mix yourself some Redrum Punch, if you dare, and let us know how it is. I’ll drink to that. Cheers!
