Crane’s Fiction

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

A nod to the Halloween folk tale, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” this fall-spiced cocktail from Zack Berger, head bartender at New York’s Analogue, blends spicy rye whiskey with homemade pumpkin cordial, cinnamon syrup, herbal Benedictine and a whole egg. Be careful not to drink too many, lest you and lose your head. Speaking figuratively, of course....or ARE WE?
