5 spots in Las Vegas for Halloween cocktails

It was the Bard himself who first uttered “double, double, toil and trouble,” in the voices of the witches in “Macbeth,” and Halloween does seem to be the perfect time to have the fire burn and cauldron bubble. Here are five places in Las Vegas to do that.

Eureka, 520 E. Fremont St., gives new meaning to the concept of a “chaser” by mixing Del Maguey mezcal, coconut milk, ghost pepper tincture, orgeat and lime and topping it with slices of dehydrated lime and Fresno chile, $14, through the end of the month.

Basic Witch
