Where to Indulge in Fancy Fall Cocktails in Dallas

From Knit Sweater-Inspired Creations to Drinks That Put the "Boo" in Boozy

BY // 10.05.22

Like anyone who knows the Texas summer heat all too well, I love when fall finally makes its presence known in Dallas. As soon as the leaves start changing colors and temperatures drop below 90 degrees, I plug in my Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Wallflower and let it mist its sweet syrupy smell throughout my apartment… usually until Christmas.

Across Dallas, you’ll find unique, pumpkin-fueled coffee from local shops, but the city’s seasonal take on boozy drinks hits just as hard. From cozy, autumn-inspired libations to spooky tiki creations, we’ve rounded up a few of the fanciest — and most fun — cocktails to indulge in Dallas this fall.

Chef John Tesar’s Knife Steakhouse in Dallas has introduced new cocktails for the fall season. These include the Out Smoked — with smoked pineapple tequila, strawberry balsamic shrub, lemon, and rosemary. The Looking Plum is an aesthetically-pleasing Japanese whiskey cocktail with sage syrup, yuzu, lemon, and fermented plum foam. The Mis Con is a mezcal creation with Tepache, demerara, Fernet Branca, Borghetti espresso liqueur, and lemon. And lastly, the Gentleman No. 1 is a mixture of scotch, sweet vermouth, and Pimm’s No. 1.
