Food bloggers What You See is What You Eat are back in the LAist Featured Photos pool with this refreshing and unusual cocktail from The Hungry Cat in Hollywood. They said: "Where else are you going to see the bartender take a slice of avocado, muddle it up with some hard spirits, and then give it to you like it is normal to muddle whole slices of fruit and put it in a drink?" Yes, $13 might be a bit pricey for some, but the Cat's original cocktails are always worth the splurge.

Incidentally, The Hungry Cat is offering a special on themed cocktails for Halloween. Get over there anytime between 3pm and 2am on the dreaded day and get half-priced specials like "Vampire's Blood" and "Ghostinis," served by "your favorite degenerate bartenders: diabolical danielle, nefarious nikki necktie, mortifying matt E and ellen the executioner."
