4 Classic Cocktails to Try Now! - The Nodding Donkey


It is a familiar scene. You’re at the bar, you draw a blank as to what you want to order, and then fear gets the best of you and your mumble something like “Malibu and Coke” to the bartender.


Now – there is nothing wrong with a Malibu and Coke…but c’mon…let’s try something new! The Nodding Donkey is here to help with 4 classic cocktails to order now:


The Paloma


Perfect for: Margarita lovers


The Paloma is refreshing and light and will be a new staple for those who gravitate toward margaritas. Made with tequila, grapefruit juice, and club soda, it is a simple drink that is big on taste. If the Paloma sounds good, you may also try our menu-based cocktail – the Texas Greyhound – made with Skyy vodka infused with grapefruit and club soda.


Moscow Mule


Perfect for: Vodka-based cocktail lovers


The #1 googled cocktail of 2015 is at The Nodding Donkey, and if you have been under a rock and haven’t given it a try yet, now’s the time.  Our menu-based mule is made with Grey Goose Original Vodka, ginger beer, and a touch of lime, giving you a Dallas moscow mule that is easy to drink and oh so smooth.


Old Fashioned


Perfect for: straight whiskey lovers


Up your game and throw back to the Mad Men era with an Old Fashioned. It’s stout – made with rye whiskey and bitters – but it will soon become a favorite for putting a little hair on your chest. Don Draper would be proud.




Perfect for: gin and tonic lovers


Take the gin and tonic to a new level with the gimlet, a mixture of gin and lime juice. Light and easy, you won’t go back to the gin and tonic anytime soon. Looking for something a little sweeter? Try The Nodding Donkey’s Bombay Sour. Gin, Fleur elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, and simple syrup make this cocktail a favorite with the ladies.


See you this week at The Nodding Donkey for these and other Dallas drink specials!
