Halloween is right around the corner and we can smell fear around us. Whether it's because of the psychotic neighbor who's decided to reenact SAW in his front yard, or the girlfriend who convinced you that Ken and Barbie is a great couples costume, sometimes you need a string drink on Halloween.

Sabrina Weinberg, bartender and mixologist at Santo Lounge in Gulfstream Park has come up with just the thing. This Argentina-born beauty kicks it off with some citrus and cinnamon, then adds rum with a heavy hand to calm your nerves and muffle the screamer in you.

DonQ Screamer

1 1/2 oz. DonQ Anejo rum

3/4 oz. orange curacao liqueur

2 oz. sour mix

1 orange wedge

sugar and cinnamon mixture

orange peel twist

In a cocktail shaker, add rum, orange liqueur, sour mix and ice. Shake

vigorously. Rim a Martini glass with an orange wedge and then dip in

the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Strain cocktail into the martini glass.

Garnish with an orange peel twist.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
