Bewitch Yourself With A ‘Hocus Pocus’ Cocktail From This Houston Bar • Present Company

You don’t have to be a 300-year-old black-flamed candle to get lit this Halloween.

Halloween is here, y’all. While spooky season is definitely hitting different this year, there’s still plenty of fun a brewing this weekend. Get into the spirit of the holiday with one of these Hocus Pocus cocktails before sunrise on Sunday…or else!

Call it a cold case of nostalgia, but what’s happened to the youth-centered horror comedies of the late 90s and early 00s? The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice – all pure gold. And yet, with few exceptions and one recent Adam Sandler Netflix piece, that genre has seemed to have been cursed to the past.

If the nostalgia has you under its spell, take flight over to Present Company in Houston, where the bar will fill your chalice with a magical cocktail. Called the Resting Witch Face, Present Company’s tequila-based ode to the Sanderson sisters is made with strega, wolfberry syrups, and lime with a tumeric and lava salted rim for good measure.

Elsewhere in the cauldron, Present Company is brewing a number of other spellbinding potions, such as their Necrophili-cat, REDRUM, Pumpkin King Cauldron Shot, and more.


Present Company is a vibrant patio bar in Montrose with a specialty in cocktails. Likewise, the bar serves an assortment of red and white wines, champagnes, and craft and domestic beers.

The kitchen at Present Company offers a full menu of appetizers, salads, burgers & sandwiches, pizzas, and desserts. Brunch at Present Company is available on Saturdays and Sundays between 11 am and 4 pm.
