Dallas Drinks: The Sue Ellen

Dallas Drinks is a co-creation with Dallas Decoder, honoring the characters of the new TNT drama Dallas, which continues the Ewing family saga. See all of the Dallas Drinks here.

There was a time when there was little in former beauty queen Sue Ellen Ewing's life besides her husband J.R. When his philandering finally got to her, she turned to the bottle, becoming a boozy mess, leading to several trips to the "sanitarium" (Dallas's version of rehab).

How times have changed. These days Sue Ellen is an independent woman, in the beginning stages of a Texas gubernatorial campaign, and a devoted mother to John Ross. She hasn't had a drink in years and won't be tempted.

The Sue Ellen cocktail honors her sophistication, femininity and sobriety: a mocktail version of the Cosmopolitan.


  1. Another great addition to the "Dallas Drinks" series. Thanks for making this, dear. It got lots of attention when I tweeted it a few weeks ago.

  2. This one looks great! I think it would be "ok" to sneak a a shot or two into this drink from time to time, in honor of Sue Ellen ;o)

  3. What was her fav drink on Dallas series when she had drinking problem in the 80's. Its what I was trying to research. Scotch.
