While tequila is the most dominating agave-based spirit on Dallas' cocktail menus, mezcal is quickly on the rise with its smokier, more complex flavors. If you would like to enjoy a mezcal cocktail, visit one of these restaurants where you'll also find friendly bartenders who enjoy helping everyone find a new favorite drink:
Established by celebrity chef Dean James Max, Asador focuses on offering farm-to-fire fare. The daily changing menu represents the best of what local farmers have to offer. The chefs are known for simplicity and refine and combine traditional flavors to create one-of-a-kind dishes. Guests enjoy their meals in the upscale, yet casual dining room complete with rustic elements. They always receive friendly service, and the servers suggest food and beverage pairings that don't disappoint. Try the mesquite-grilled beef tenderloin with Texas Smoked Rose cocktail.
At Jalisco Norte, Chef Jose Meza celebrates modern Mexican cuisine. Fresh ingredients make his dishes shine, and many diners come for the tamales. Guests enjoy the festive setting with colorful lanterns, unique masks, and floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views. Behind the bar, the bartenders create an array of cocktails. One of the favorites includes Holy Smoke. It features Xicaru Reposado Private Barrel Mezcal, triple citrus, and liquid smoke.
BOWEN HOUSE DALLAS
The Bowen House takes everyone back in time to the 1800s. It's one of Dallas County's last remaining examples of the wood frame, vernacular farmhouses prevalent throughout the area during the latter part of the 19th century. Bowen is one of the city's top bars and offers one of the best happy hours in town. Enjoy the Passion & Pepper cocktail with the crab cakes or zucchini pasta.
