This fall, enjoy seasonal libations, including pumpkin ales and spirited cocktails, from local haunts. Watch as brewers and bartenders turn your drink of choice into a spooky delight. Add some jolly to your fall bar crawl by enjoying Santa-inspired concoctions from some local spots.
Here are some of the best North Myrtle Beach attractions for finding spirited cocktails, wines, and brews.
1. Seasonal Cocktails – Twelve 33 Distillery
Enjoy seasonal cocktails made with handcrafted spirits now through December at Twelve 33 Distillery in Little River.
If you like sweet cocktails, order the Laces Out made with vodka, chocolate syrup, and coconut cream topped with a toasted marshmallow garnish. The Cobbler With Consequences features spiced rum, apple cider, apple cinnamon brown sugar syrup, and fresh apples. And the Lil Punkin combines spiced rum, pumpkin puree, half n’ half, and agave.
If you prefer a tangy cocktail, order the Never Trust a Ginger made with peach vodka, orange juice, simple syrup, lime juice, and ginger beer. Or the Spicoli’s Van, featuring rum, apple cider, cranberry clove simple syrup, bitters, and cold smoke.
If you can’t choose just one, order a flight of seasonal cocktails. Or skip fall altogether and go straight to Christmas with the Save Frosty cocktail made with Santa’s Little Helper liqueur, also sold in bottles.
2. Pum’kin Wine & Holiday Vino – Duplin Winery
Duplin Winery at Barefoot Landing is getting into the fall spirit with the release of Pum’kin, a sweet grape wine with natural flavor. Duplin also released its holiday-inspired wines, which include Peppermint Cotton Candy, Christmas Wine, and Naughty & Nice.
Spend the day at Duplin, known for its sweet Muscadine wine. Lounge on the patio and enjoy a wine tasting along with crackers and dip as live music plays in the background. Take a couple of bottles home to sip on long after your fall family getaway.
3. Jav-O-Lantern & Pump’d Up Brews – Crooked Hammock Brewery
Released in August, the Jav-O-Lantern is sending seasonal beer lovers into a frenzy. Made in-house at Crooked Hammock Brewery at Barefoot Landing, the Jav-O-Lantern is a pumpkin coffee ale with the right amount of pumpkin, spice, and everything nice. Skip the coffee taste and order the Pump’d Up pumpkin ale, another Crooked Hammock seasonal specialty.
With so many seasonal libations to choose from, you’ll feel the holiday spirit in no time while vacationing in North Myrtle Beach.
