Pappas Bros. Steakhouse's live piano, bartenders in crisp, white shirts, and old Dallas feel almost brings to mind scenes from the New York gangster movie staple "Goodfellas". While you don't have to worry about being taken out while enjoying your dry-aged premium steak, you still may be told to get your shine box.

One of the newest additions to their seasonal cocktail menu, Tommy's Shine Box, brings together a beautifully aged Madiera with notes of fig and a full-bodied golden rum to make a drink that is the perfect end to any meal. Go ahead and opt for one of these good fellas with your dessert, and buy your pal one, too. Because sometimes one more cocktail is all it takes to make you seem like a funny guy.

Tommy's Shine Box ($14): Pampero Aniversario Rum, H&H 5 Year Old Madiera, Amaro Nonino, lemon, orange, dark sugar
 Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, 10477 Lombardy Lane, pappasbros.com
