As Brad Thomas Parsons notes, this is one of the best-named cocktails out there, especially for Halloween parties. Even more appropriately, it’s pumpkin-colored (unless you use blood orange juice to make it, in which case it’s blood-colored! Perfect, right?). If you want the cocktail to be “straight”, use Grand Marnier; if you want it to be “curly”, use curacao.
This tasted okay. I think as far as orange juice cocktails go I prefer either the burnt orange or the Bronx zoo; but it really is a PERFECT Halloween cocktail. You must try it.
