Drinks and dishes that taste like summer in Dallas
The Sweet J's Bakes offers you good apple pies that are the perfect Americana desserts that you can bring to a summer barbecue or other celebration.
Once you and your friends are exhausted from too much fun and sun at Klyde Warren Park, order a frozen margarita from Taqueria La Ventana or head down McKinney Avenue for some street tacos and cold drinks at a casual patio picnic table with a giant umbrella.
Or swap that hot cup for iced coffee flights from Peaberry Coffee inside Celestial Beerworks. Do some shopping at The Dallas Farmers Market stalls that are exploding with fresh fruits and vegetables like greens, peppers, berries, cucumbers, peaches, summer squash, and more.
Then, walk down at Drake’s for its newest cocktail called Aviation Gin or its Grey Goose, which is served super chilled and individually bottled.
