Cocktail Hour

When you visit Daily Gather, you’ll feel a comfortable familiarity, like you’ve been invited to a get together with old friends. Think about the times you’ve enjoyed around the dinner table at home, the laughs and memories you’ve shared. That’s the kind of place it is. At Daily Gather, you’ll find food that’s new, but that feels like the classics you’ve loved all your life, whether your roots are in Texas or elsewhere across the country. It’s a reflection of the beautiful diversity of Houston’s food culture.

And what’s food without great drinks? At Daily Gather, the cocktails are based on classics, but with a Daily Gather perspective. We asked the team at Daily Gather to share the recipe of one featured mocktail and one featured cocktail so we could practice out our mixology skills. Next time you’re in the neighborhood make sure to pull up a seat at Daily Gather and see what’s on the menu. You’re always invited.
