ABOUT THE WITCHES’ BREW COCKTAIL
So many Halloween cocktails sacrifice balance for boo! Not the case with the Witches’ Brew, a smoky scotch sour doused with fino sherry and beet juice, which bubbles violently when served in a glass pipe with dry ice. But if special effects in your drink give you the heebie-jeebies, skip them. This Halloween cocktail is just as much of a treat without the tricks.

ABOUT THE REVENANT COCKTAIL
John Filkins, the beverage director at Officina and Masseria in Washington, D.C., wanted to do a richer version of a Boulevardier, including adding a whiff of smoke. He boils Fee Brothers. Aztec chocolate bitters and cardamom bitters, taking advantage of the fact that since they’re both glycerin-based they smoke but don’t burn the way those made from alcohol would. A snifter is filled with smoke and covered with a coaster, and the drink is then poured tableside from a carafe.
“Chinato is a great replacement for vermouth and adds an herbal complexity, [while] dry curaçao helps to lift it,” says Filkins. “The smoke adds a wow factor when it goes to the table, and chocolate and cardamom bring aromatic complexity and warm baking spices.”

ABOUT THE TENNESSEE SUMMERTIDE COCKTAIL
Sarah Turbett, the bar manager at Oak Steakhouse in Nashville, came up with the idea for her brain-freeze-inducing creation thinking about her favorite flavors of summer and fall growing up in Tennessee. “Tennessee whiskey, summer peach and vinegar notes brighten up fall spices, orange peel and licorice, transporting your palate from the warm end of summer to the early crisp autumn breeze,” she says. “Light enough to enjoy during the heat but complex enough to hold up to a piece of pumpkin pie, this cocktail is the perfect drink for the end of summer. Imagine sipping on this frozen cocktail on your porch in a great wooden rocking chair, watching the sun go down in a golden sky over amber fields.” Sounds just peachy.

ABOUT THE RUM & TONIC COCKTAIL
“I love a Rum & Tonic during the summer,” says Ashwin Vikhu, the co-owner of Saffron in New Orleans. “It’s a great alternative to a G&T because it’s light and refreshing all the while having depth of flavor.” This drink is served Spanish-style in a large wine goblet, garnished with a lot of the ingredients whose aromas and flavors either compliment or coax out those in the rum.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “It’s Time to Give the Rum & Tonic Its Due.”
INGREDIENTS IN THE RUM & TONIC COCKTAIL
Old Port East Indian rum
Paranubes Oaxaca rum
Fever-Tree Premium Indian tonic water, to top
