Combine two Dallas favorites, stir in one of America’s favorite fresh fruits and what do you get? One tasty cocktail.

Created by a bartender at Sheraton Dallas Hotel’s popular restaurant Open Palette, the Local Apple cocktail is made with whiskey handcrafted by Dallas distillery Herman Marshall.

To make the Local Apple, combine:

— 2 oz. Herman Marshall Whiskey

— 1 oz. egg white

— ¾ oz. lemon juice

— ½ oz. simple syrup

— ¼ muddled apple

Garnish with a toasted apple moon and a cinnamon sprinkle. Enjoy!

Event hosts can choose whether the view rotates or stays put.

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
