This gastropub has long been a reliable player in Tustin’s nightlife scene with drinks flowing ‘til 2 a.m. Get a taste of cozy spices with Bar Louie’s warming fruit cocktails like Them Apples, made with Ketel One, St-Germain, apple, kiwi and lemon, and The Clover, crafted with Maker’s Mark, Courvoisier VS, agave, lemon and orange. And don’t miss out on ordering their famous Voodoo Pasta while you’re there.
This poppin’ Mexican restaurant is known for its authentic Mexican Cuisine and lively mariachi brunch and dinners. They’ve created two limited-time only cocktails for the Fall Cocktail Tour, which include a pumpkin spice margarita, made with El Jimador Tequila Blanco, house pumpkin spice and fresh-squeezed lime juice. Then for horchata lovers, their boozy Mexican horchata made with El Jimador Tequila Blanco, Bailey’s Cream Kahlua, cinnamon and vanilla won’t let you down.
Lucille’s Smokehouse is known for authentic Southern barbecue, from their tender baby back ribs and tri-tip to their hickory-smoked sausages. But when it comes to satisfying that sweet tooth, they’ve concocted a delightfully boozy dessert in a cup for the cocktail tour. Dubbed the Drink Before Midnight, it’s made with Mount Gay Dark Rum, real pumpkin purée, Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur and sweet cream, which is then shaken and served with a generous heaping of whipped cream and Nilla Wafer crumble.
Renowned for classic Italian comforts like wood-fired pizza, spit-roasted meat and pastas that are made in-house daily, Luna Rossa has been serving Tustin for nearly a decade. They’ve put a spin on classic Italian cocktails with two specialty drinks: T the Italian Buck, made with Nonino L’Aperitivo, fresh lime juice, ginger beer and mint, and the October Mist–featuring Amaro Nonino, Aperol, bourbon and fresh lemon juice.
Since opening in Japan in 2011 and making its way to Tustin, RAKKAN has grown in popularity due to its authentic, 100% plant-based ramen broth. For the cocktail tour, they’ve developed their very own sake! The Matcha Nigori Sake is a slightly dry sake with subtly sweet Japanese green tea flavor, lingering on a note of sweet honeydew and pistachio, served either hot or iced.
The spirits are brewing up some fun concoctions over at The Winery! This upscale steakhouse and wine bar will be serving spooky drinks like the Potion 13, made with Grey Goose Watermelon Basil vodka, sparkling rosé, dragon fruit and strawberry, along with the Zombie’s Brew, made with Wheatley vodka infused with matcha, vanilla, mint and lemonade. Don’t skip the Widow’s Kiss Martini, consisting of Three Olives Berry Vodka, Pama, Chambord, blueberry, açaì and mint.
Also be sure to check out the other restaurants participating in the Fall Cocktail Tour at The District, including Prego Restaurant, RA Sushi Bar and The Yellow Chili.
