Earlier this week I had the pleasure of trying out a few of the new cocktails and appetizers Del Frisco’s Grille recently added to their menu with my girl, Taylor. We dined at the Del Frisco’s Grille in Uptown Dallas on Mckinney Avenue but if you don’t live in Dallas, they have several other locations you can visit! The weather has been gorgeous this week so naturally we sat on their patio to soak up some sun while we sip our cocktails. Our incredible waitress Stephanie helped us decide what to order and she did not disappoint. These cocktail concoctions surpassed my expectations, and then some.
We started with the “Youth Serum” and the “Sangria Pop”. The “Youth Serum” is fresh cucumber, fresh mint, Hendrick’s Gin, and fresh lemon sour and it was delicious and refreshing! The “Sangria Pop” is a summer version of their White Sangria that is made of Pinot Grigio, white peach puree, Peach Schnapps, and fresh berries, except the summer version has a fruit-filled popsicle inside of it! Not only is this drink beautiful, it is delicious (and how fun is it to have a popsicle in your cocktail?!). It always amazes me how many restaurants mess up sangria but Del Frisco’s Grille was spot on with their white sangria.
As for food we started with the Cheesesteak Eggrolls that came with a sweet and spicy chili sauce and honey mustard. It is no surprise these are a crowd favorite. They were full of flavor and definitely something I will order again. We also ordered the Jumbo Lump Crabcake and House Baked Pretzels. The crabcake came on a cajun lobster sauce and was packed with lump crab meat. The soft pretzels came with a cheddar sauce and grain mustard.
All of this eating made us thirsty again so it was onto round 2 of cocktails. Our waitress convinced me to try her favorite, the Kilt Lifter. While I don’t know how this cocktail got its name, I do know it was amazing and I don’t know why I ever doubted her (sorry Stephanie- you were right!). The Kilt Lifter is made up of Hendrick’s Gin, St-Germain Elderflower Liquer, a splash of Tabasco, and a squeeze of lemon. The splash of Tabasco is so subtle and balances the flavors of the cocktail perfectly- highly recommend. Taylor had The Morning After which is Pearl coconut vodka, coconut water, lemon sour, and topped with Sprite. Basically this is a guilt-free cocktail because you’re hydrating while you’re drinking (I hear it is a popular option for those who may have stayed out late the night before!).
I am looking forward to making a trip back soon to try out more cocktails on their rooftop patio (Thursday nights they have live music from 7-10pm!) and plan on testing out their brunch menu to share with you all very soon (Hello! They have a “Build your own Bloody Mary” and mimosa carafes!). Del Frisco’s Grille recently had a patio party featuring many of their cocktails and appetizers for only $7! Keep up with me on Instagram so you can stay in the know for the next time one of these great events happen!
Let me know if you make your way to their patio and enjoy your weekend!
