Whilst scavenging the web for some classic cocktail ideas, perfect for Halloween, I happened upon this recipe from Sloshed!. Lo and behold, it was just what I was looking for. According to the article, Satan’s Whiskers first appeared in the Savoy Cocktail Book around 1930. After scouring the ingredients I knew this is one Halloween concoction that has true staying power. If you’re looking to class it up a bit this year, this is the cocktail for you.

Satan’s Whiskers

½ oz gin
½ oz dry vermouth
½ oz sweet vermouth
½ oz fresh-squeezed orange juice
2 tsp Grand Marnier
1 tsp orange bitters
Orange twist, for garnish

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into an iced cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist and serve. Cheers!
