The state of Texas loves giant things to call their own and this bar in Dallas is no different. The Standard Pour has Moscow Mules that are just massive! It's safe to say the drinks at this bar are anything but standard and their sharing size makes them perfect for a night out.
The Moscow mule comes in several sizes. One of these is your regular personal drink size and the other is a massive sharing size. The sharing size is built for four or more people but they also offer half sizes (that are still beyond huge!) for smaller parties. Moscow Mules are made with New Amsterdam vodka, lime juice, ginger beer and mint. While regular mules are around $8 to $10, the appropriately named "Big Mule" fit for 4 or more people is $100.
Aside from the mules, the bar also has an extensive list of American Whiskey and Scotch. The bar does have classic cocktails as well, and often times they have themed weeks where they bring in a new set of cocktails for visitors to try. Some of their famous drinks include "The Texas Handshake," "The Dallas Proper," and "Golden Girl."
On Saturdays and Sundays until 4 p.m. the bar offers brunch, serving everything from burgers to salads. Happy Hour at The Standard Pour is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday where they have fantastic drink and cocktail deals. You'll want to plan your next visit right away so you can try the Big Mule with all of your friends!
