Fall this year in Dallas wasn't really much of a fall. The 95-degree days in October threw off our pumpkin spice mentality, so we're excited to finally be feeling a chill in the air — and warmer flavors on cocktail menus.

Bowen House's newly released fall and winter menu offers some light (but just right) cocktails for the chillier months and some perfect transitional options — a little wintery without overwhelming with heavy cream and copious nutmeg. Thanks to its simple flavor profile, the Winters With Hemingway is the perfect option for days that have highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s. Zephyr gin and red vermouth set the stage with a great balance of spirits, and the housemade blackberry syrup goes in for the (perfect) kill.

Winters With Hemingway ($12): Zephyr Gin, Lillet Rouge, blackberry, sage, lemon


Bowen House, 2614 Boll St. (Uptown)

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
