John Jordan has become notorious for his annual Halloween at Jordan costume parties, hosted each October for members of the restaurant and retail wine trade, as well as press. This year’s event was dubbed Festivus Maximus–a tribute to warriors, gladiators and goddesses of ancient Roman times. Estate Sommelier Pete Yen creates specialty cocktails to complement each year’s party theme, and we’ve included a crowd favorite cocktail from last weekend’s event below. Happy Halloween!
