As the Halloween holiday approaches, North Texans have plenty of spooky-themed food and drinks available to enjoy.
According to a list compiled by the Dallas Observer, in addition to cookies and sweets, adults can find a variety of alcoholic drinks and more on offer.
Mi Dia from Scratch is serving The Dulce Travesura (trick or treat) this Halloween season. This margarita is made with Cointreau, Osadia Blanco tequila, mandarin puree, lemon water, and vanilla agave with dry ice on top.
Its website lists Mi Dia from Scratch locations in Plano, Flower Mound, and Grapevine.
Halloween-themed alcoholic drinks can also be enjoyed at Roy G’s. The restaurant is featuring three special drinks this spooky season: Roy G’s Blood Bag, A Straight Up Syringe Shot, and the Pumpkin Bowl.
Their blood bags come in a variety of flavors, including Spiked Bacardi Dragonberry “to get your red blood cell fix,” suggests its website.
A Straight Up Syringe Shot, according to Roy G’s, is gin and bloodberry mixed in a 60cc syringe. It can be taken as a shot or shot into a champagne tower or mimosa. The Pumpkin Bowl is the largest Halloween drink at Roy G’s, featuring spiked Western Son Peach and champagne in a fish bowl glass. The website states this drink is meant to be shared.
North Texans can enjoy special bonbons from October RU Chocolate‘s pop-up events, according to the Dallas Observer. Each Halloween box comes with four bonbons, each a different flavor: eyeball, pumpkin, mummy, and skull.
The eyeball flavor is actually red velvet cream cheese, the pumpkin is pumpkin pie spice, the mummy is Nespresso coffee, and the skull is Cajeta con Churro.
The next RU Chocolate pop-up will take place on October 29 at the Day of the Dead Festival in Fort Worth, according to the shop’s Instagram. The festival will be held at Wild Acre Brewing. Earlier pop-ups this month were held at the October Market, Brewed LTD, and Viernesito Night Market.
All month La Casita Bakeshop in Richardson has been preparing Halloween-themed pastries and treats, the Dallas Observer reported. The Monster Cream Puff and Eye Pie Blueberry Danish can currently be ordered through the shop’s online store. The Eye Pies are made in limited quantities.
“Filled with strawberry pastry cream, strawberry guava jam, and black sesame seed praline — don’t let the name fool you, this little guy is sweeter than he presents,” the website shares about the Monster Cream Puff.
Chrysta Miller has also hosted various pop-ups this month to sell custom spooky-themed cookies, she shared in an Instagram post. The first two were held on October 15 and October 16. Upcoming pop-ups are scheduled for October 21, October 29, and October 30.
Some of Miller’s custom cookies are not kid-friendly, according to the Dallas Observer. Pop-ups with these kinds of cookies are advertised as 21+ only. North Texans can also purchase DIY cookie kits from Miller to create their own Halloween-themed treats.
