The common children's sandwich that graced many a lunchroom table is now showing its face at Dallas' downtown Southern eatery, Grayson Social, but in rare form — cocktail form.

The unique element in this $13 throwback cocktail is peanut butter bourbon. It's 1835 Bourbon infused with peanut butter, but the whole process was baffling, so just avoid trying to make this one at home (too many sticky fingers). The housemade raspberry jam isn't anything to sneer at, either. Grayson Social has found the perfect balance of sweet and tart in this jam — just make sure you slather some on one of the unreal biscuits to accompany your cocktail.

Grayson Social, 1555 Elm St. (Downtown)

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.
