Making Dallas Even Better


Sweet Jackie
Champagne, gin, triple sec, lemon juice, Grenadine, orange liqueur

Bartender Joe Buenrostro learned his trade at the San Francisco Rose. Though the Kennedy Room looks like it was made for Manhattans, there are other choices: the Moonwalk, for example, or the French 75. But Joe’s Sweet Jackie is the drink of the house. It had a clean taste that made me wish I was summering on Nantucket.
