5 Halloween-Friendly Cocktail Recipes From Coopers’ Craft & Fine Philadelphia Establishments
As Halloween 2019 falls on a Thursday, this means that plenty of people will be celebrating Halloween not only on the 31st, but also the Friday and Saturdays before and after the 31st. In turn, if you will be hosting, it never hurts to have some Halloween-themed cocktail recipes at your disposal.
Coopers’ Craft Bourbon is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey which uses a unique beech and birch charcoal-filter finishing process for a smooth and flavorful bourbon. Taste and quality aside, as the only major distiller to make its own barrels, Coopers’ Craft absolutely stands out from the pack.
From scary-good chocolate peanut butter cocktails to boo-zy cotton candy libations, you can get into the spirit with these 5 Halloween-inspired tipples shown below, courtesy of Coopers’ Craft, Brown-Forman’s newest bourbon brand in 20 years, Art In The Age — a one-of-a-kind tasting room, home bar supply and bottle shop — and the Halloween pop-up bar in Philadelphia known as HAUNT.

A release from Brown-Forman that’s definitely flying under the radar. “Chiseled & Charred” is what the label reads, referring to chiseled barrel interiors after charring to deepen the whiskey’s wood exposure. It’s an interesting pour that I’m pleasantly surprised by. There’s an unique apple note on the palate with burnt sugar and cinnamon on the finish. Another budget bourbon that might be worth a try. —————————————————————————— #bourbon #bourbonwhiskey #whiskey #whisky #bourbonenthusiast #jacksonville #florida #cheers #instawhiskey #bourbonporn #drinks #imbibe #whiskeywednesday #🥃 #brownforman #cooperscraft
