The Lazy Lane Hot Toddy from Frank’s Americana Revival was named for the iconic and very prestigious street (Lazy Lane) in the River Oaks neighborhood. This cocktail warms you up, yet is crisp and refreshing to drink with its subtle apple and cinnamon flavors and New Orleans’ distilled Straight Rye Whiskey. You can shake up this drink at home or enjoy it at the restaurant!
Houston’s The Toasted Yolk took autumn’s iconic latte and spiked with TWO double shots of espresso and kicked it up a notch with Texas’ own Tito’s vodka! This Spiked PSL will not only give you a good caffeine buzz but also a brunch-time buzz, too! You can shake up this drink at home, enjoy it at the restaurant or order it to-go and spike it yourself!
Sweet and comforting, there’s nothing like biting into a warm pan dulce straight from the panaderia! Cork Bar at Hotel Contessa in San Antonio took all the warm and cozy feelings of nostalgic Mexican pastries and transformed it into a boozy drink with only three simple ingredients.
Traditional Mexican hot chocolate has an ultra-creamy richness, unlike any hot chocolate you’ve tasted before. This delicately spiced and optionally boozy drink from our own test kitchen is exactly what we want to cozy up with all winter long.
