As the leaves change color from lush greens to copper, red and brown, wine bars across Dallas switch to their seasonal menus. The farewell to the summer season welcomes the coming of fall. Even if the weather isn’t according to the season, it’s never too late to start drinking that way (if you’re 21, of course). So say goodbye to frozen margaritas and adult lemonades, and hello to warm ciders and pumpkin-spiced cocktails to order at your next happy hour.
The following is a list of must-try cocktails in town:

2. “Pumpkin Spiced Martini” by SĒR Steak + Spirits
Nothing screams “fall!” more than pumpkin spice. SĒR’s upscale “PSL”-inspired martini combines a basic girl’s two favorite things during this breezy season: pumpkin spice and alcohol.
