If you think that Halloween is just for kids, you’re doing it all wrong. As an adult, you can still dress up in crazy (and sometimes inappropriate) costumes, decorate your place like it’s a haunted house, throw a fun party, and serve up some delicious adult beverages to bring it all together.
Our alcohol of choice for this most spooktacular time of year? Hornitos® Black Barrel tequila. If you haven’t tried this before, just listen to this. Hornitos® takes a premium aged Añejo tequila and then ages it two more times in traditional whiskey barrels to deliver a superior tequila with complex whiskey notes. This elixir of the gods combines two of my favorite spirits, and it’s really a beautiful thing. It hits you with the punch of tequila and the smooth back note of whiskey.
For our Halloween party, we created one heck of a cocktail that was a hit with everyone there – so much so that the bottle was gone before we knew it! It’s a take on an Old Fashioned called El Guapo (the handsome man), but in the spirit of Halloween, we decided to call it El Hombre Lobo Guapo (the handsome werewolf).
It’s the perfect drink to take your party to the next level, and here’s how you make it.
El Hombre Lobo Guapo
- 1 1/2 part Hornitos® Black Barrel
- 1/2 part lime juice
- 1/2 part simple syrup
Preparation: Muddle the mint leaves in the glass. Mix remaining ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour over fresh ice. Garnish with mint leaves.
Just be careful, as if you drink too many El Hombre Lobo Guapos, you might just end up outside howling at the moon like the handsome werewolf that you are. 🙂
