Forget stopping for a tasty brew or two. Indulge your senses at these Twin Cities hot spots serving up cocktails so exotic they're an art form.

Be sure to save plenty of room for the adult malts--delectable ice-cream drinks loaded with fruit liquor, fizzy champagne or coffee-flavored booze. Our favorite is the Johnny Cold Train, a giant ice-cream confection loaded with chocolate-y booze and dressed up with coffee beans.
Master mixologists at this swanky downtown hot spot create artful drinks from the freshest ingredients, including house-made bitters, flowers, candy and more. If you're hankering for a dessert in a cup, go for the Amaretto fizz,--a unique and fizzy take on a classic cocktail.
On cool evenings, head to the Cathedral Hill neighborhood to check out W.A. Frost's Hot Apple Pie or the delicious Ginger Snap, which comes with dark rum, molasses, ginger syrup and cappuccino. There's nothing better on a crisp fall night than this dark-wood bar and a warm drink.
Tequila flows like the Mississippi at this Nicollet Mall eatery, where more than 80 tequilas are on offer. Try out some of the more unusual varieties, or go for a signature margarita like the Macho Camacho, made with blood orange ancho and a splash of Cava.
