We’re getting in the holiday spirit with this week’s signature cocktail — the Menacing Mule! This dry ice Halloween cocktail gets a spooky kick from some spicy ginger syrup, and is sure to please all your guys and ghouls this weekend!
We’re looking forward to cozy nights by the fire this fall season and Paula LeDuc‘s Winter Martini is the perfect Signature Cocktail to get us ready for the holidays! This creamy whiskey beverage includes a homemade butternut squash syrup filled with all your favorite fall flavors including cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg!
In a large saucepan, combine the squash, sugar, 2 cups water, the cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the squash is soft, about 15 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, reserving the syrup. Pick out the cinnamon, cloves and allspice, and discard. Transfer the squash and the syrup to a blender. Add remaining 1 cup water and purée until smooth. Strain the purée through a fine-mesh strainer and refrigerate.
