It’s spooky season, so what better way to get into the festivities than with a Halloween-themed cocktail from Catoctin Creek.
The Virginia-based distillery was founded in 2009 by Becky and Scott Harris, and was the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before prohibition. Dedicating itself to faithfully upholding tradition, the distillery’s flagship Roundstone Rye has achieved multiple awards over the years and provides not only an excellent base for Catoctin Creek’s whiskey portfolio, but also for this cocktail.
Whether you’re just having a quiet night at home this Halloween, or a spooktacular gathering with friends, this pumpkin treat is going to bring just the right amount of spice to your lives.
As always, enjoy responsibly and tag us in your finished cocktail on social media!
