Congratulations on surviving another work week. Now that the weekend’s here, it’s time to treat yourself to a night out with friends. Bars and clubs are a great way to unwind, and you probably already have a go-to drink order. Maybe you’re looking to expand your cocktail horizons. Here are some highly recommended drinks by bartenders who’ve had their alcohol license Dallas TX and have been mixing up delicious indulgences for years.
Many bars have put their own modern spin on this classic, but a true old fashioned is a smooth, balanced blend of dark whiskey, bitters, and sugar, then garnished with an orange twist. Some bartenders will squeeze in a few drops of orange juice. It’s a simple and classy drink that most any bartender can make well.
This sweet and smokey cocktail mixes blended scotch, ginger, honey, and lemon juice and is typically served on the rocks and topped with a float of single malt Scotch. It’s then often garnished with candied ginger. This is a strong but refreshing drink that every Scotch lover should try.
If your tastes lean a bit sweeter, try this blend of vodka and orange juice. This sweet and tangy treat is served on the rocks and garnished with an orange slice or a cherry.
There are a few variations of this cocktail, but it is typically made with vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice. It’s fruity, a bit tart, and just the right amount of sweet.
Want something sweeter than the Sea Breeze? Try a hurricane. This tropical getaway in a glass is a mix of passionfruit juice, lime juice, pineapple juice, grenadine, simple syrup, and two types of rum, one of which is usually Captain Morgan.
Now that you have a list of highly recommended drinks to try, enjoy your weekend bar night and always drink responsibly.
