Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge goes the extra mile with its Basic Witch cocktail

The most ghoulish time of the year is upon us, and Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge brings a unique twist to the saying, “witching hour” with its Halloween inspired cocktail, the Basic Witch. Available for the month of October, the delicious potion is a spellbinding combination of Blackheart Premium Spiced Rum, Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur, barrel-aged bitters and a pinch of Maldon Sea Salt. The Basic Witch is priced at $14 and pairs nicely with light bites such as the fan-favorite Arancini (risotto fritters with mascarpone, roasted mushrooms and truffle aioli), Olive Poppers (crispy olives stuffed with chorizo) and the Lebanese Platter (house-made hummus, fresh tabbouleh, quinoa and cous cous).


Double Helix is open 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 4:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.



Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge opened at Town Square in 2011 and has served as an unrivaled destination for great food, unique drinks, and a dynamic social scene for more than ten years. The 2,800 square-foot-space features a full bar serving 50 wines by the glass, 250 whiskey labels, custom cocktails, wine and whiskey flights, as well as an assortment of small plates created by Executive Chef Doug Vega. Double Helix offers happy hour from 4:30 pm to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and an award-winning brunch, featuring bottomless mimosas, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
