Cool breezes, long dark nights, and glorious harvest moons make fall a festive season, and Halloween is no exception. Spooky costumes, trick-or-treating, and enchantment permeate the holiday—but why should kids have all the fun? Autumn is finally here, Halloween is fast approaching, and Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits in the Upper West Side is here to help you celebrate.
Here are a few ways to spice up your All Hallows’ Eve celebrations with New York City’s favorite wine and liquor shop:
- Pumpkin-Spiced Liqueur: Pumpkin spice is a great choice when you want to serve cream-based cocktails. You won’t scare guests away with this hearty after-dinner drink that’s perfect to serve as a dessert too.
- Red Wine: Cooler weather is the perfect time to open a bottle of pinot noir, merlot, or cabernet. Serving goblets of mulled wine, spiced with cinnamon or raisins, is another great choice for autumn.
- Spooky Cocktails: A Bloody Mary, a Green Goblin vodka cocktail, or a Blood & Sand with scotch are a few of ghoulish-themed drinks sure to your bring your guests to life. To make a classic Blood & Sand, for instance, mix scotch, cherry liqueur, vermouth, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Then, shake well and strain before serving in an ice-cold glass.
