A guide to purple drinks in Fort Worth

We’ll drink to the Horned Frogs with these local libations.


The lavender martini at The Tavern runs $14 and is a mix of vodka, lavender simple, and lemon.

Last summer, our friends at LOUToday published an article on the best purple drinks in their city. We are not afraid to borrow a concept, and purple is kinda Fort Worth’s thing — being home to the Horned Frogs, and all — so let’s list some of our favorite purple libations.

The Tavern | 2755 S. Hulen St.
Tavern actually has two menu options that fit the bill: Kiss The Frog, made with Empress gin and St. Germain, and City Editor Ted’s personal pick, the lavender martini.

CAVA | Multiple locations
Our several of our Instagram followers suggested the Greek chain’s signature blueberry lavender beverage.

The Coupe | 314 S. Main St., Ste. 110
The purple gimlet has returned for spring; as is common with purple concoctions, the drink involves Empress gin.

Second Rodeo Brewing | 122 E. Exchange Ave., Ste. 340
The bar often has a purple drink on tap. Settle in to sip on the large outdoor patio.


You can go off-menu at WXYZ in the Aloft Hotel Downtown and ask for a “Passion Cove,” which is a sweet-sipper.

WXYZ | Aloft Hotel Downtown | 334 W. 3rd St.
WXYZ, which has a solid food menu, also has a lavender option. Show you’re in the know by ordering a “Passion Cove” off-menu, which is deep purple and vodka-based.

Purple Frog Cantina | 3468 Blue Bonnet Cir.
Roughly 25% of the drink menu involves purple beverages, which is on-brand considering the proximity to TCU. The purple frog shot is a good opening gambit.

Dutch Bros | Multiple locations
Another non-alcoholic social media nominee was the Dragon Slayer, with a delectable blackberry drizzle.

Tarantula Tiki Lounge | 117 S. Main St.
Our personal favorite thing to order is “Mermaid Orgy,” but check out High Priestess of Funk for a purple fix.

Your turn — tell us the best purple sipper out there.
