Halloween Drinks – Our Favorites
Summer was beautiful and fun, but fall means pretty colors (we’re sort of partial to gold and red, crimson and amber), and more importantly Halloween parties. Below are a few of our favorite J. Henry and Sons Bourbon cocktail recipes.
Simple and elegant, this cocktail hearkens back to the classic films of Bella Lugosi and a more innocent sort of terror.
- 2 fluid ounces J. Henry & Sons Bourbon
- 3⁄4 fluid ounce peach schnapps
- 3-4 fluid ounces cranberry juice
Start with bourbon; mix in the schnapps and cranberry juice. Shake and enjoy (or tremble)!
Perfect for those late night congregations of evil, the Apple-clypse Punch is a favorite among ghosts, goblins and ghouls alike.
- 2 cup(s) Pineapple Juice
- 1 bottle(s) Apple Cider(750 ml)
- 1 bottle(s) Cranberry Juice(64 oz.)
- 1 bottle(s) Ginger Ale(1 Liter)
- 1 bottle(s) Henry & Sons Bourbon(750 ml)
Mix it all into your cauldron with ice and stir. Add in some apple slices and dry ice for effect.
On Halloween, there is no such thing as cliché. Though not a proper martini, you’ll feel like you need another before the sun comes up.
- 2 oz.VeeV Acai Spirit
- 1 oz.Acai Juice
- ½ oz. J. Henry & Sons Bourbon
- 1/2 oz.Lime Juice
Combine VeeV, Acai juice and fresh lime with fresh ice in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass and top with champagne.
An elegant option for the Halloween party. This Pseudo-tini is powerful on flavor and, perhaps evil.
- 1 part(s) Apple Pucker
- 1 part(s) Cranberry Juice
- 1 part(s) J. Henry & Sons Bourbon
Shake until well chilled. Serve in a martini glass, garnish with a spiced crab apple slice.
Patton Road Massacre

- 3 part(s) J. Henry & Sons Patton Road Reserve Bourbon
- 3 part(s) Orange Juice
- 1/2 part(s) Orange SyrupBlood Orange
Place all ingredients in a hurricane glass over ice and mix well. Drizzle blood orange syrup over top and garnish with lime or orange zest. Remember to stick with a buddy.
King of Halloween
For the chef who wants to make some serious inroads into bartending and party hosting, this cocktail requires some significant preparation – that is, a pumpkin reduction. If you can handle this, then nothing can stop you now…
- 1 ½ oz. Henry & Sons Bourbon
- 1 oz. pumpkin reduction
- 1 dash of celery bitters
Pour bourbon, pumpkin reduction, and bitters into a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir generously. Strain into an old-fashioned glass with one large ice cube.
Just remember, guys and ghouls, these treats can play tricks and are for Trick or Treaters 21-years of age or older!
