Halloween doesn’t mean that only the kids get the treats! We’ve got a frightfully delicious cocktail for you to mix up at home and sip while handing out candy to all the trick or treaters or watching scary movies.

The Americana Cocktail

The Negroni is a classic cocktail with flavors of orange peel and bitter cherry and it always reminds us of Autumn. A lesser-known version of this cocktail is called The Americana. The flavors of the sweet and bitter that make the Negroni so popular come together in a slightly less alcoholic drink. We suggest using the Italian bitter liquor called Cappelletti Apertivo. It has a beautiful natural red tint and a pleasant bitterness, which makes this cocktail is a great treat that will get you into the Halloween spirit!

2oz. Club Soda
