5 Holiday Cocktail Recipes from Salvador Dobbs

Salvador Dobbs Bar in BoerneLooking to add a new cocktail to the mix for your next holiday party or happy hour? Salvador Dobbs has shared some of their new creations as well as tried and true favorites that will surely liven up your next event! Not throwing a holiday soiree this year? Gather a group and head over to Dobbs to let the capable crew behind the bar do the cocktail crafting for you! Check their live music schedule on Facebook and plan accordingly before you go too.

We sat down with Veronica, the owner of Salvador Dobbs, and she shared four of her seasonal favorites from their menu. They have introduced two new cocktails for the Christmas season including a chocolate martini with a Christmas twist – a candy cane rim! Their “manlier” seasonal choice is the smoky Chacmool, which is similar to the classic Old Fashioned. Ladies are more than welcome to sit back with one of these cocktails too!


Chocolate Martini from Salvador Dobbs in Boerne, TXChocolate Martini

1 oz Creme de Cocoa

1 oz Vodka

Shake, shake, shake and strain over a chilled martini glass rimmed with chocolate sauce and crushed candy canes (for the holiday spirit).

Who doesn't like a chocolate martini? Not personally being a fan of creamy drinks, the DOBBS Chocolate Martini is made free of cream. It’s tasty and smooth!


Rx-Mas Margarita from Salvador Dobbs in Boerne, TXRx-Mas Margarita

Smoke infused rosemary margarita

1.5 oz smoke infused tequila*

1 dash simple syrup

1 dash of lime juice

1 large ice cube with frozen cranberry/rosemary

Rim glass with smoked salt (dip glass in lime juice so salt will stick)

*Smoke (burn) rosemary and capture in inverted glass. Then add tequila to infuse.

Next, add simple syrup and lime and stir. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

A festive, lower calorie version of a margarita. The smoke infused tequila ads a whole different layer of flavors to savor! Check out this video of how they infuse the tequila at the bar. The instructions here are a little easier to reproduce at home.
