The countdown to Halloween is on! Malibu Black celebrated this spooky holiday season by hosting a private tour of the haunted Merchant’s House Museum, which was declared “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House,” by the New York Times.



After the tour, it was necessary to make a beeline to the bar to relax! We were shaken up some delicious cocktails to sooth our nerves.

Below are a few recipes to try and mix at home for your own Halloween fiesta.
