Dallas is most definitely a cocktail city. While you can find a great drink at so many bars here, there are a few that really stand above the rest. Talked about, unique, and most importantly, delicious—thelittledish.com says these are the city’s must-sips!
Bar Belmont’s Blackberry Mojito
901 Fort Worth Avenue
Dallas, TX 75208
Muddled blackberries make a good mojito better. It’s a sweetly refreshing drink and really nice for those who don’t like the saccharine taste of flavored syrups that are often added to fruity cocktails. The patio’s amazing view of the skyline makes it taste even better.
The Bar at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek’s Gin and Tonic
2821 Turtle Creek Boulevard
Dallas, TX 75219
There’s something beautiful about a simple thing done well. The tonic is made in-house using quinine powder and sparkling water. No. 209 gin, simple syrup, and fresh lime are then combined to perfection.
PM Lounge’s Horchata de Casa
1530 Main Street
The posh basement lounge at the Joule Hotel offers an inventive twist on a classic Spanish drink with their Horchata de Casa, featuring their house-made Horchata and Barbancourt Rum.
Love Shack’s Jalapeno Margarita
817 Matisse Suite 445
Fort Worth, TX 76107
Simultaneously refreshing and hot! This margarita combines traditional ingredients—Casa Noble Tequila, Cointreau, and lime—with pureed jalapenos & cucumber. Your mouth will be confused… and delighted.
Mi Cocina’s Mambo Taxi
3699 McKinney Avenue
Dallas, TX 75204
Many a happy hour has kicked off with a round of Mambo Taxis. While not everyone’s sure what’s in them (frozen margarita, sangria, and Chambord), it’s guaranteed that everyone loves them.
Lee Harvey’s Michelada
1807 Gould Street
Dallas, TX 75215
Grab a seat at one of the picnic tables outside, pet one of the dogs wandering around the yard, and then order the best Michelada in the city: Mexican beer (usually Tecate), tomato juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, and lime.
Victor Tango’s Moscow Mule
3001 N. Henderson Avenue
Dallas, TX 75206
Spicy pureed ginger, vodka, club soda, and freshly squeezed lime compose one of VT’s most popular cocktails. The bar is beyond crowded on the weekends, but this drink is worth the wait.
