Thursty Thursdays - The Widow's Touch

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, probably because it gives me an excuse to wear whatever costume I want and not be judged, but mostly because it's the day before my birthday. This year I will keep it low-key and probably head to an amusement park for some horror-filled fun with a few of my closest friends. Now, if I could only find a costume..

I often fantasize about having my own place to entertain my nearest and dearest, especially during the holidays when it's so much fun to decorate and serve themed food and drinks. Like this Widow's Touch cocktail that could very well be named "Witch's Brew." It melds warm, sweet, autumnal flavors with a touch of tartness that is every bit sophisticated as it is wicked. Just don't knock on my door, torches in hand, when it brings out the evil in you. Happy Halloween!

The Widow's Touch


  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 5 tablespoons Laird's Applejack
  • 3 tablespoons St-Germain (elderflower liqueur)
  • 1 tablespoon Bénédictine liqueur
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters


Place ice cubes in cocktail shaker. Add remaining ingredients and stir 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into 2 chilled small coupe glasses and serve.

  1. I'm so sad I haven't went to Universal or Knotts this year. Like I've missed out on Halloween. I hope you have a blast and a great birthday :)


Merci beaucoup!
