I have an unnatural obsession with cocktails with a savory or spicy kick. From pickle beers to Bloody Marys, I have to try them all.

The Eddy Kruger, now available at Picoso's Mexican Kitchen (7611 Milwaukee Avenue), is the perfect drink for the season and the region.

Combining Texas vodka with agave, spice and Topo Chico, it's a savory, sweet Chilton of sorts:

Gather your spooky #spicesquad for a scary good drink on Halloween Day with the Eddie Krueger, a Picoso’s original. Winner of the Cattle Baron’s Cocktail Challenge this drink is mixed with basil-infused Deep Eddy’s lemon vodka, agave, fresh squeezed lemon juice with cayenne pepper purée, and splashed with Topo Chico.
Picoso’s Eddy Krueger. Don’t sleep on it.

Yum!
