Embrace the Taste of Fall!

October 12, 2022

A change of seasons means a new selection of creatively crafted cocktails in the Back Door Lounge at Starved Rock Lodge. Warm up on a cool autumn afternoon with a hot toddy called “Morticia’s Nitecap” or perk up your day with this Galliano Expresso Coffee called “I Like It A Latte”, infused with seasonal flavors of maple and cinnamon. Everyone’s favorite uncle is back! With the perfect mixture of Peach Pecan Bourbon and Bailey’s, Uncle Matt’s Coco leaves everyone smiling. Granny’s Revenge is served hot! Granny Smith is at it again and this time she brought backup. If the 1800 Repasado doesn’t warm you up, the hot apple cider with hints of chipotle and orange are sure to! Our Caramel Apple Jack is a sweet, hot apple cider treat that’s sure to make you smile!

The new Seasonal Cocktails are just as much fun. “Pumpkin to Talk About” is a twist on a bourbon smash with flavors of cinnamon and pumpkin combined with Cody Road Bourbon for a drink so good you’ll have to tell your friends! The “Black Widow” lets you crawl into a web of good flavor with this blackberry whiskey lemonade spun just for you with Bulleit Bourbon! Don’t overlook the Pecan Pie Martini. It’s never too early in the season for this fan favorite featuring the flavors of Vanilla Vodka, Rumchata and Frangelico. “Here’s Johnny” is a classic margarita that features Patron and locally sourced apple cider! The “Witchy Hippy” was brought forth from deep within our spell book for this Sour Apple Schnapps and Cherry Smirnoff potion! Finally, the “Wild Harvest Sangria” offers notes of cranberry, pineapple, peach, and mango combined with Starved Rock Zinfindel to create a cornucopia of good flavor. 

All of these fall drinks are available in the Back Door Lounge and in the Main Dining Room of Starved Rock Lodge.
