You may not be trick-or-treating for candy anymore, but you can definitely go pub-crawling for cocktails this Halloween.
Bartenders around the city are taking the autumnal holiday as an excuse to invent new beverages that channel its macabre spirit.
This month, trade in your red Solo cup of Pabst at a house party for a glass of one of the specialty drinks below:
Industry Kitchen’s Crazy Clown
Pegged to the release of “It,” the horror film based on the Stephen King novel, this cocktail is equal parts rum and peach schnapps. The mixologists at Industry Kitchen are adding orange juice, lemon juice, simple syrup, bitters and grenadine (a reddish pomegranate syrup) to give their clownish concoction bite and color.
