October ushers in the fall as well as the craze of Halloween. With all the weird and mystical happenings, it’s only appropriate to share where to find some of our neighborhood’s oddly named and carefully concocted cocktails.

Lounge Here
9028 Garland Road
Classic cocktails and a variety of bourbon and scotch are sure to keep customers happy at Lounge Here. But why not try one of their more adventurous drinks? The Forest Hills Swizzle (Caña Brava rum, hibiscus tea bitters, lime juice and simple syrup) or The Ideal Stinger (Hennessy V.S., Branca Menta and simple syrup with a cacao cream float) will do the trick.

1212 Skillman St.
Of course Cosmo’s has cosmos, but have you ever heard of a Paris, TX (Longhorn Vodka, St-Germain, lemons, muddled strawberries or seasonal fruit and champagne) or perhaps an Eddy Sweet Tea-ni (Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka, sour mix and fresh lemons)?

Lakewood Growler
6448 E. Mockingbird Lane
With dozen of selections available at the Lakewood Growler, some have stand-out names like the Imperial Fire Ant Funeral or the Queen of the Mist.

The Libertine Bar
2101 Greenville Ave.
Always mixing it up with seasonal and house favorite The Libertine Bar also has some wildly named drinks. Are you ready to “Swipe Rye-T” with some apricot-infused Redemption Rye and strawberry Aperol? How about a “Holiday in Cambodia” with some house-infused kaffir lime Caña Brava rum?

2114 Greenville Ave.
Everyone has their own coffee order. But for those looking to change it up, try an Iced Toddy — a 16-hour cold brew, or The Van Gogh Spritzer — four shots of espresso mixed with sparkling water.
