Everyone who grew up in the 1990s remembers Ecto Cooler. Literally everyone, it’s an undisputed fact. But with it being discontinued, what are you supposed to serve at a Halloween party?

With tangerine, orange, and loads of honey, this fermented home brewed honey wine does the trick – while reminding you of that classic refresher you loved as a kid. Ghostbusters fans unite.
