Lunar Eclipse, Victor Tangos – Dallas

This cocktail will remind you of glazed carrots. Turmeric-infused vodka, carrot juice, honey, lemon juice, Angostura bitters come together in a mind-blowing take on a delicious dish.

Sweet Potato Old Fashioned, Nickel & Rye – Dallas

I don’t know about you but, sweet potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. Bulleit Bourbon, Angostura bitters and a House-made Sweet Potato Cordial (roasted sweet potatoes, brown sugar, spices, triple sec) make this cocktail an exceptional, spiked, clone of an all-time favorite dish. It’s creamy, spiced and slightly smoky. And yes, the marshmallow is toasted table-side!

The Cranberry Hot Tub, Stonedeck Pizza Pub – Dallas

This spicy, fruity twist on the classic hot toddy will rock your cranberry sauce (or in my case, cranberry chutney) lovin’ world. Equal parts Midnight Moon 100 proof Cranberry Moonshine and Drambuie steep with star anise, cinnamon, clove and balsamic-glazed cranberries in a French Press to brew the perfect answer to all this chilly Dallas weather.
