HALLOWEEN

HALLOWEEN FREAKY FACTS

Orange and Black colors are used because orange represents the colorful fall harvest. Black represents the darkness of winter.

The Irish placed candles in turnips to keep away spirits. Over time pumpkins got used instead.

And some Halloween tidbits from Family Circle Magazine Oct. 2011. Chew on this: October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds, that’s 9 billion pieces, are made each year. One kernel has a mere 3.57 calories. Candy corn is fat free. A cup of candy corn has about as many calories as a cup of raisins.

Halloween Humor

“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on people’s doors and go, Trick or Treat, No thank you.”

—Rita Rudner

SEPTEMBER IS BOURBON MONTH

Bald eagles, apple pies, football-it can’t get any more American than that. Unless we’re talking liquor. Did you know the official national spirit of the US is bourbon whiskey? We can all thank Kentucky for not only producing around 97% of the world’s supply, but for making this spirit a national symbol. In 1964, Congress dictated that bourbon was “distinctive” to the US. People took that to mean it was our national liquor; however, in 2007, a Kentucky senator realized the shocking mistake and pushed for a resolution to be passed and luckily succeeded. Today, bourbon drinkers enjoy their whiskey in many ways and during any occasion. From Manhattans to barbecue glazes, night caps to tailgating, bourbon is as celebrated as America herself.

MANHATTAN: Bourbon Whiskey 2 1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth 3/4 oz. Biters Splash. Ice. Cherry. Combine bourbon, vermouth, bitters and ice in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits or cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled glass and strain the bourbon mixture over the cherry.
