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.

4 unconventional -- OK, odd -- Old Fashioned cocktails in Dallas

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.
