COUNTER 3. FIVE. VII
Try their delicious and refreshing Paloma, made with tequila, grapefruit, salt.

CANTINE has a very unique drink that's a must-try! Their Draft CANTINE Pinarita is made with tequila blanco, mezcal, pineapple, Fire & Damnation bitters, and lime.

Odd Duck
We can't rave enough about Odd Duck's Draft Paloma, made with Tequila blanco, grapefruit, tarragon, ginger, and salt foam. Is this the best Paloma in Austin? We think it just might be!

Barley Swine
Always embracing creativity, Barley Swine boasts the Chucho, made with Sotol seasoned with pine and orange, lime, grapefruit, and saline. It's a sotol-based cocktail seasoned with pine needles and Texas oranges. Lime acid, grapefruit and saline allow those notes to pop off. Sotol is sweeter than mezcal and not smoky, the tannins from the pine needle and acidity from the citrus make this a very "spring forward" cocktail.
