Creepy Cocktail Recipe: Off with the Head Old Fashioned 

It’s been well established at Favor HQ that Fridays in October call for creepy cocktails and spooky snacks, and we’ve got you covered yet again with a fun end-of-week beverage! Today's cocktail recipe is perfect for a little at-home happy hour by the fire—the below makes a single drink, but we bet it’d be great doubled or tripled in batches.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Off with the Head Old Fashioned. Thanks once again to our friend and bartender extraordinaire Lindsay Brunson for the recipe—cheers!
