Asador, located in the Renaissance Dallas Hotel has rolled out their brand-new fall menu complete with seasonal hand-crafted cocktails. Among that rollout is the Texas Smoked Rose, a colorful beverage featuring Texas bourbon, mezcal, fresh lemon, a wine float and garnished with a rosemary sprig! This drink is a mixture of fresh and warm flavors sure to get you in the fall spirit! 

Ingredient List: 

1.5oz of Texas bourbon

1 oz of mezcal

.5 oz fresh lemon juice

.5oz Texas red wine

Fresh rosemary

Kitchen torch/lighter


Add Texas bourbon, mezcal, and fresh lemon juice into a shaker with ice and shake hard until well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Slowly pour the Texas red wine over the back of a bar spoon so that the wine floats on top of the drink. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and lightly torch the leaves to release savory, aromatic notes.
