Solemn John Cocktail

About this Cocktail

In honor of Halloween, the Hotel Monteleone’s barkeeps devised a series of cocktails named for their permanent guests. One in particular caught our eye—Solemn John, named for a 1920s businessman from Tennessee who’s said to still wander the premises. It’s a creamy, whiskey-laced fall libation with a bit of pear liqueur and a touch of cinnamon. It works great with bourbon, or try it with rye for a little extra bite. Either way, it makes a perfect treat for a grown-up Halloween party, even if the only real spirits around are in your glass.
