Starting tonight, Dallas’ will soon see the coldest temperatures of the year — so far. As such, you’re going to have to break out the heavy coats, scarves, and boots because the mercury could be dropping below freezing temperatures this weekend. But even the coziest blanket can’t warm you up like a killer hot cocktail.


You’re probably going to be tempted to just sit inside with Netflix and your fireplace, but there’s no reason to put a damper on your social life because the temperatures are a little bit chilly. Whether you’re in search of Dallas’ best hot toddy, a comforting mug of hot chocolate spiked with bourbon, or a libation that’s a little more intricate, these 11 Dallas bars will help you take the chill off in a hurry.

1. Cook Hall

2440 Victory Park Ln
Dallas, TX 75219
Hot cocoa is a must in this kind of weather, especially with a heavy-handed shot of booze. Mixed with chocolate syrup, RumChata, and milk, the CookieChata is as comforting as a batch of freshly-baked oatmeal cookies.

After a night of partying in Deep Ellum, head over to the Double Wide for this year’s menu of piping-hot, deliciously trashy libations. Try the Thin Mint, the bar’s Yoohoo Yeehaw cocktail spiked with a shot of Rumple Minze, or go for the moonshine-spiked apple cider served all classy-like with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick.

Caffeine and booze are a classic combination, but adding beer into the mix only improves on a classically great formula. Saint Arnold Santos Black Kolsch is mixed with espresso liqueur, honey, and china china bitters to produce the Coffee Bomb, a decidedly refined take on an Irish coffee.

You’ll have to ask the bartender to warm it up for you, but the Crimson & Clove is decidedly worth the ask. Parce rum, apple cider, cranberries, ginger, and allspice mingle to create what feels like a cozy sweater in a glass. Don’t fool yourself, though — this drink still packs a punch.

French and Mexican cuisine blend seamlessly at this Oak Lawn eatery, but the Carajillo cocktail comes straight from south of the border. A shot of piping-hot espresso is mixed with a shot of herbaceous Licor 43 to create an ideal aperitif and one of Mexico’s favorite post-dinner libations.

6. Midnight Rambler

1530 Main St
Dallas, TX 75201
Mom might not be around to make you a comforting bowl of chicken soup, but the wacky mixologists at Midnight Rambler offer something equally hearty, but better because it’s spiked with booze. Sriracha, chicken broth, lime juice, and pineapple syrup are gently warmed, then mixed with Beefeater gin to produce a potent take on sweet & sour soup.

2613 Elm Street
Dallas, TX 75226
If this Deep Ellum spot’s selection of infused moonshine isn’t enough to start a fire in your belly, sit back and relax with a Cranberry Hot Tub. 100-proof Midnight Moon cranberry moonshine is mixed with Drambuie that’s been steeped with star anise, cinnamon, clove, and balsamic-glazed cherries and served warm in a French press.

You might want to huddle up close to the bar, but Truck Yard’s holiday cocktail menu will definitely keep you warm. Choose your spirit (rum or bourbon, preferably) to spike a piping hot mug of hot chocolate or try the bar’s house hot toddy, mixed with Dallas’ own Herman Marshall whiskey.
