The Beverage Issue
Celebrate our Beverage issue this summer by keeping yourself hydrated and cool.
Cool as in sipping on an herb-infused spritzer drink—Lucinda Hutson offers several options to choose from. I vote for the Gin and Roses (after reading all about the history of gin by mixologist David Alan).
Cool as in using those plentiful tomatoes from your garden or the farmers markets to make a calming Tomato-Water Martini, courtesy of Laura McKissack. Craving a non-alcoholic refresher? Try your hand at making Kate Payne's soda syrups for your own homemade fountain sodas. Spiking allowed, of course!

Blending Texas with old world Spanish grapes.
Connecting over a cup of coffee.
Growing one pearl snap at a time.
Trailblazers in the evolution of Texas wine.
Experience the true beating heart of old Austin.
Dust the cobwebs off the gin...
...and meet an all-local artisan.
