Happy Hour: Jack-O-Lantern Cocktail

This Jack-O-Lantern cocktail looks like a pumpkin when garnished correctly, but it has none of the pumpkin flavoring. It's a great drink that mixes Cognac with the flavor of orange (always a great combination) and it has the visual aesthetics which are perfect for Halloween. If you don't want to make it yourself, stop by Southern Hospitality in NYC where you can get the original.


  • 1 oz Hennessy VSOP Cognac
  • 1 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz ginger ale
  • 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
  • orange wheel and lime twist for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker.
  2. Strain into a lowball glass over ice.
  3. Float an orange wheel topped with a lime twist on top.
