In late October, the weather gets a little cooler (a few degrees cooler in HNL). Do the minds of lusty men turn a little darker.....more sinister.....? Perhaps.

A customer asked about some seasonal (Halloween) cocktails that would help bring out the true essence of a lusty man. Our belief: "a tipsy man's actions are a sober man's thoughts…" Here are a few that will get him tipsy enough to bring out his true nature:

When you want to drink something creepy-loooking and BLUE, give this one a try....

1 oz. light rum
2 oz. coconut rum
1 oz. Blue Curacao
pineapple juice

It tastes like a modified Blue Hawaiian. Combine both rums and Blue Curacao in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then pour into a cocktail glass. Fill the rest of the glass with chilled pineapple juice. Tasty tropical terror.

This drink is deceptively potent, thanks to the shot of Bacardi 151 rum floating on top.

1 oz. light rum
1 oz. dark rum
1 oz. apricot liquor
2 oz. orange juice
1 dash Bitters
1 oz. Bacardi 151 Rum
orange slice and cherry, for garnish

Combine light rum, dark rum, apricot liquor, orange juice and bitters using a cocktail shaker. Pour into a large glass filled with ice. Top with the shot of Bacardi 151, then garnish with the orange slice and cherry. Fruity-delicious.

Dark and Stormies
Don't drink so much that you wind up making out with the guy in the gorilla costume—only to realize that it's just a really, really hairy man later.

4 oz. dark rum
8 oz. ginger beer
½ oz. fresh lime juice
Thinly sliced lime

Stir ginger beer, rum and lime juice together. Serve in tall cocktail glasses with 3 or 4 ice cubes each; garnish with lime. Bacchus uses Cock & Bull Ginger Beer. Yum.

Now that he's had one of these cocktails and is staring into your eyes intently, you lean in for a kiss, and…
