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
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.
