Cool Cocktails

It’s hot out there. Cool yourself off with a refreshing summer cocktail. Whether stirred, shaken or frozen, these summer drinks will help you beat the heat.

Neighborhood Services Tavern
Neighborhood Services Tavern—with bartender Jason Kosmas of New York’s Employees Only fame at the helm—mixes up this aged rum highball as his take on the classic Dark ’n’ Stormy. While the Dark ’n’ Stormy features Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, the Thunderball boasts Zacapa 23-year-old Guatemalan Rum, black and red tea-infused vermouth, fresh lemon juice and ginger beer. The end result is a well-balanced, refreshing summer cocktail with the spicy, palate-cleansing bite of ginger. 2405 N. Henderson Ave., 214.827.2405.

The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
One of the classiest drinking establishments in town, The Mansion has been mixing up serious cocktails since before it was fashionable. But even The Mansion can have some summer fun; the bar’s Boozed Smoothie blends vodka, Lemoncello and fresh strawberry purée for a light, fruity drink perfect for sipping on the patio.

Ozona Grill & Bar
Ozona Grill & Bar is an oasis for the do-it-yourself drinker. Score a spot on the patio and take your provided glass of vodka to the make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Ozona’s palette of fresh ingredients is your chance to create the world’s greatest cocktail. 4615 Greenville Ave., 214.265.9105.
