This egg nog cocktail recipe from Dallas’s own PS 214 has all the flavor of your favorite holiday drink but with sweet maple and spicy rum. Christmas and New Year’s Day may be behind us but winter stretches in front of us like the interstate through Kansas. Tiresome, boring, and never ending. A brunch at PS 214 in Dallas is the perfect way to break through the post holiday blahs. If you are out of the area you can still enjoy December’s seasonal cocktail, the Winter Break. We were invited for brunch by PS 214 and they picked up the tab. All opinions are my own.
For this recipe you’ll need: clear spiced rum, heavy whipping cream, Licor 43, cinnamon maple syrup (or plain maple syrup and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon), egg white, ground cinnamon
Y’all may remember that my husband and I enjoyed brunch at PS 214 in Dallas last November. I shared the details on Instagram and Facebook and some of y’all asked me for more information.
PS 214 is one of the cutest spots in Dallas for brunch, as far as I’m concerned. It’s decorated in a mid-century modern schoolhouse style with globes and diagrams, and even menus that look like your old composition notebook. It’s pretty much worth it to go just for the decor BUT the food is amazing, too.
I could go there every day except I prefer not to weight 10 million pounds and blast my liver into oblivion. The cocktails are as killer as the food.
Y’all know brunch on the weekend is my favorite, right?
I can’t get enough of the bacon cheddar tots with sriracha catsup! Definitely order some of those for the table. Crispy outside and meltingly tender inside and so hot you have to toss them from hand to hand to get them to your mouth. Seriously, trust me on this.You've gotta eat at PS 214 Dallas! Quirky, cute, and some of the best comfort food in Big D.Click To Tweet
The Eggs Benedict pizza is another of my brunch favorites. Prosciutto, padano, in house hollandaise, two fried eggs and quick sauteed Brussels sprouts are arranged on a crispy pizza crust. Break the eggs and the rich yolk flows over the other ingredients so you’ve got crispy, tender, salty, rich, and piquant all rolled up into one mouthwatering bite of yum.
There are numerous artisan beers on tap. I’m not much of a beer drinker but the Campfire Stout by Highwater Brewing is totally unique. It’s brewed with chocolate malt, graham crackers, and toasted marshmallow flavors.
There is usually one special cocktail that changes every month. I don’t know what January’s is but I can tell you that November’s The Stache and December’s Winter Break were both fantastic. PS 214 has sweetly shared the recipe for the Winter Break, a luscious egg nog cocktail.
PS 214 is located in the Uptown area. There’s a ton of shopping, too, so plan to go when you have some time to relax. Try to get seated near the window (or outside if it’s a nice day) so you can people watch. This is a great restaurant to meet friends but not so much a place you’d want to initiate a corporate takeover. Relaxed, fun, and delicious!
