Drinking In the Herd
Saddle up for a drink worthy of a samurai at this Dallas landmark
The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection, which is housed atop Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar in the HARWOOD District, is one of the largest of its kind outside of Japan.
So it only makes sense that a samurai cocktail would be a staple of Saint Ann's menu. To honor the impressive artifacts, bar manager Jack Cline is ready to reveal what goes into this longtime favorite.
Watch and learn about the fortifying cocktail, then pay a visit to its namesake collection (admission is free) and stay for a second round down below at Saint Ann.
2-3 dashes angostura bitters
2 oz. Kentucky straight bourbon
0.5 oz. blood orange simple syrup
Fresh blood orange
Pour the simple syrup into a glass and top with ice.
Add the bourbon and angostura bitters, then top with the zest of a blood orange peel.
