Garden & Gun's latest issue gives a nod to Dallas restaurant CBD Provisions. The article, which appears in the October/November issue, on newsstands now, features five spiked tea drinks from restaurants in the South.
CBD Provisions' Sweet Texas Tea made the cut, and bar manager Eric Brooks provided the recipe for the refreshing cocktail: 2 ounces of bourbon, 2 dashes of bitters, 2 mint sprigs, 1 ounce of black tea syrup, and 3/4 of an ounce of fresh lemon juice.
(Now you've got a new cocktail to drink with dinner.)
Brooks told the magazine, "Tea and bourbon just go together. ... When you see tea in a drink, you know it's going to be refreshing and delicious." The other cocktail concoctors seem to agree: four of the five drinks featured include bourbon, and the last uses its cousin, rye whisky.
In 2014, the restaurant received national attention from Condé Nast Traveler, whose writers made a case for ordering the Red Pegasus at the "white-hot restaurant." The drink is no longer featured on CBD's cocktail menu, however.
Sweet Texas Tea is one of CBD Provisions' 10 cocktails on its current menu.
