Drink of the Season
This one never fails to brighten up a party as well as everyone's spirits. It's so simple and delicious, you can't help but celebrate.

1 oz. cranberry juice
Champagne or Prosecco
Mix Paula's Texas Orange and cranberry juice in a tall champagne flute. Top off with champagne. For best results, make sure all ingredients are well chilled.
Other Holiday drink ideas
- Make a Holiday Cosmo with Paula's Texas Orange, Texas vodka, a splash of cranberry juice and club soda. Swizzle with a candy cane.
- Decadent delight is Paula's Texas Orange and 360 Double Chocolate Vodka. Rim the glass with salt for a pleasant surprise.
- A cozy drink for a cold day: brew a cup of tea with a cinnamon stick; add 1½ oz. PTO, 1 oz. apple juice, and a few drops of lemon juice. Serve warm or over ice.
Drink Local night moves on up
In its fifth year, Drink Local night, part of Edible Austin
's Eat Drink Local Week, was better then ever. Fourteen locally based spirits producers sampled their wares in the grand ballroom of the AT&T Center. Along side for the first time, the Official Drink of Austin contest
pitted five local drink slingers in the battle for the year-long city-sanctioned title. Houston Eaves of Contigo won over the judges with his Smokin' Gypsy featuring Balcones Brimstone and Tito's Vodka, using dry ice for a literal smokin' effect. We were thrilled that Justin Chamberlain of Sagra came in second with The Pinetop, which included Paula's Texas Orange. And we were also not-so-secretly rooting for Jessica Sanders of Drink.Well, whose concoction included Paula's Texas Lemon. Kudos to David Alan, aka The Tipsy Texan
, for putting together a great event, and thank you Edible Austin and the AT&T Center.
New cocktail conference in San Antonio
Mark your calendar for the brand new San Antonio cocktail conference
January 26-29. With the maturation of the craft cocktail movement in Central Texas, it's only fitting that both local and national glitterati of the cocktail scene should converge for four days of seminars, tastings, and contests. And fun. Paula's Texas Spirits is proud to be a sponsor, and we invite you all to come out for all the events. See you there!
