DAYS UNTIL HALLOWEEN:

10

DRINK:

Jack O’Tini

2 oz Stoli Vodka
1/4 oz Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 oz Orange Juice

Place a large soup pot filled with water on the stove to boil. Carve the tops from the pumpkins and set aside. Scope out the interior and seeds, leaving a think shell. Discard the seeds and flesh, or use in another recipe. Place the pumpkins in the boiling water, and boil for approximately one minute. Remove and drain. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into the pumpkin. Serve with a black straw.

EAT:

Jack ‘O Lantern Quesadillas with Chipotle-Maple Pumpkin and Black Beans

I love me some Mexican food, especially black beans and quesadillas. This recipe provides a little Halloween twist on a lunch and dinnertime staple. Pumpkin puree, chipotle chili powder and maple syrup are combined and then grilled between two tortillas with black beans. For the extra Halloween-obsessed nut, take a paring knife and cut Jack ‘O Lantern eyes and a mouth into the tortilla and serve.
