The Fright Night in the Grove cocktail is so good it’s scary. Freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice lends a pop of bright citrus flavors to a dreadfully-delightful combination of Jägermeister and tequila. But be forewarned. Too many of these may lead to one terrifying night.
Looking for more spooky cocktails to serve this Halloween? Try the delicious Death in the Afternoon cocktail with absinthe and champagne.
I found the long-aged tequilas such as anejos balance out the Jägermeister better and keep the cocktail full flavored and not so overpowering. With a hint of simple syrup, this is an incredibly lively cocktail for being so close to the grave.
