An easy pumpkin (Jack-o-Lantern) preserver is to spray your pumpkin with WD-40. IMPORTANT: Let it set for at least 24 hours before adding your candle!
This will keep the pumpkin from rotting/molding, etc. for about 3 weeks or so.
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 oz. Jack Daniels
12 oz. Coca Cola
After pouring in your ingredients, and adding 3-5 ice cubes,
according to taste.
Stir the drink with a stirrer to get the Vanilla off the bottom.
