Midnight Rambler Brings Back Greatest Hits Alongside New Fall Favorites

Downtown Dallas' cocktail den, Midnight Rambler, is bringing back some old favorites from menus past and throwing in a soon-to-be fall favorite or two. One of its new tipples is the Hot Buttered Soul, a fall-forward cocktail named for a Southern soul album by Isaac Hayes.

The "soulful Texas fall fix" by the bar's creator, Chad Solomon, is an interesting take on an old fashioned with a fat-washed brown butter bourbon. While the process of fat-washing liquor is a little unsavory (pun completely intended), it gives the cocktail a complexity and rich, deep flavor. (The orgeat is equally as complicated — it's made in house by roasting pecans and blending with brown basmati rice and cassia bark to get a nut/rice milk before it's filtered, clarified in a centrifuge and sweetened.)

This is one you won't want to try at home ...
