For those looking for a more low-key Halloween tomorrow night, but still intending to have a good time, this beer-based cocktail ought to be the perfect compromise. It can be made with or without the bourbon, but if you are serving a large group try to make it in smaller batches. The hard cider and beer will both lose their fizz too quickly otherwise.

Serves 2-3.

What you’ll need:
12 oz pumpkin ale
12 oz hard apple cider
4 oz apple cider
2 oz bourbon

Combine the ale and ciders in a large mixing glass. Pour into 12 ounce glasses and drop in an ounce of bourbon to serve.
