“It’s definitely fruity—because there’s blackberries—there’s maybe a mezcal type thing going on, because the whole cocktail is infused with smoke instead of just the agave spirit. The rim is a salt rim with Sichuan peppercorn, they’re not really spicy just tingly. The whole thing is a trip! It’s a drink that’s definitely appropriate for spooky season! You’ll want to sip more just to figure out what the flavors are. It’s my favorite cocktail on this new menu!” —Cory Reuter, Bar Manager
The Cocktail is made with Ghost Coast’s signature Tommy Agave spirit, fresh lime juice, chipotle agave syrup, and blackberries. Then, the whole drink is smoked using Ghost Coast Bourbon barrel oak chips.

The Insider Trading: Crafted with house-made apple cider, it’s served with Ghost Coast Peach Whiskey, but we hear it’s also delicious with their Tiki-Spiced Rum. It’s a taste of Fall in a lowball!
