Thirsty Thursday…Jack-0′-Lantern

Halloween is quickly approaching. Time is running out to pick the perfect costume and stock up on bags of candy. I stumbled upon this cute little Halloween cocktail, and had to pass it on because it’s so unbelievably freaking adorable!

Jack-0′-Lantern Cocktailimage

  • 1 oz. cognac
  • 0.5 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. ginger ale
  • orange wheel & lime twist for garnish

COMBINE all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.

SHAKE well and STRAIN into an ice-filled rocks glass.

GARNISH by floating an orange & lime “Pumpkin Top” (see below) on top of the cocktail.

To make the “Pumpkin Top” garnish:

FOLD a small piece of lime twist in half and INSERT it into the center of an orange wheel.

Isn’t this drink the cutest thing you have ever seen?
