1.   Summer Beer

Hello – it has summer in the name! This refreshing summer cocktail includes Grey Goose L’Orange vodka, Shock Top beer, and lemonade. We love how light and easy to drink this cocktail is – you’ll love the tangy twist of lemon and beer combined. 

 

2.   The Tony

Sip this one slowly because it’s stout! This expertly crafted cocktail includes Ketel One vodka, Captain Morgan white rum, Don Julio tequila, and Tanqueray gin. This delicious blend of spirits is The Nodding Donkey’s twist on the classic Texas Tea, and we’re pretty sure ours is better!

 

3.   Margaritas

Margaritas are the quintessential cocktail of summer in Dallas, where there is a Tex-Mex restaurant on every corner and Dallasites reallllly love their Tex-Mex. Order something off of our Texican menu and pair it with our classic house margaritas made with Altos tequila (it’s only $5 on Tuesdays as part of our Dallas drink specials!) or order our top shelf version with Tres Agaves tequila. Either way – you can’t go wrong. 

 

4.   Donkey Punch

Our list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our signature cocktail, the Donkey Punch! Served by the glass or by the pitcher, this delicious concoction includes Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum and VEEV blended with some other top secret ingredients. All you need to know is that a pitcher is always a good idea!

 

5.   Old Fashioned

The classics are back when it comes to cocktails, and the Old Fashioned is always in style. Ours includes Bulleit bourbon with a splash of cherry and bitters.
