The holidays are here, and restaurants and bars around town have broken out their seasonal boozing menus. So I went on a pub crawl and explored some of Dallas' best wintry concoctions over the past couple of weeks, stopping at The Library Bar, Windmill Lounge, Bolsa, Meddlesome Moth, Marquee Grill, SWIG and Black Swan Saloon, encountering both traditional and original holiday-themed drinks.
Check out some photos after the jump and the full Winter Cocktails of Dallas slideshow here.
