This month, one of downtown's newest restaurants will give Dallasites the chance to pay homage to the Kennedy family in a boozy way. Stop into Elm Street Cask & Kitchen, sidle up to the bar and order up one of their featured cocktails, the John F. Kennedy or the Lady Onassis
The two cocktails — the rum and bourbon stirred cocktail and the bubbly, sweet tipple — are like the iconic couple. Jackie's cocktail screams (demurely, of course) class and elegance, and John's is stout (thanks to the doubled-up liquors) and sexy. (We're just glad they stayed away from using a Cuban rum in John's.)
