Feeling festive yet? If not, head to one of these locally owned businesses for holiday spirits (pun intended) that are sure to bring tidings of joy.


1.  The Big Apple

Where to find it: Asador Restaurant

Why it’s so good: Think apple pie on Christmas morning. This well-kept secret inside the Renaissance Dallas Hotel makes the apple cinnamon syrup used in this cocktail, which is sure to warm you up.


2.  Chocolate Eggnog Martini

Where to find it: Del Frisco’s Grille in Uptown

Why it’s so good: Chocolate vodka and eggnog — enough said.


3.  Adult Apple Pie

Where to find it: Kenny’s Burger Joint (both Frisco and Plano locations)

Why it’s so good: Kenny’s deems it an adult “milkshake.” With apple pie filling, cinnamon, ice cream and a graham cracker rim, you can see why.


4.  John’s Remedy

Where to find it: Origin Kitchen + Bar

Why it’s so good: This establishment used to serve only grab-and-go meals, but recently reopened to include a bar. This beverage is a simple warm drink, made with Irish whiskey, cherry liqueur and Chinese bitters.


5.  G’s Punch

Where to find it: Joyce and Gigi’s

Why it’s so good: Nothing says the holidays quite like punch. This one from an East Dallas gem includes peaches, cinnamon and orange zest bitters.


6.  Black Mission-Fig Infused Cognac

Where to find it: The Mermaid Bar – Neiman Marcus (NorthPark Center)

Why it’s so good: Heavy cream, figs, nectar and nutmeg make this drink a holiday-infused delight.
