Summer may technically be winding down, but don't trade in your beachside drink for a pumpkin spice latte quite yet.

State of sip: Tasting Table declared Florida's best cocktail the Bushwacker, specifically Flora-Bama's in Perdido Key.

Yes, but: You don't need to drive to the Alabama border to enjoy one.

Here are a few places to get the Bushwacker experience in Tampa Bay:
