Drink of the Month

Stonewall Fizz

Recipe by David Alan

Here's an idea for using local peaches when they are in season. It's more fun than eating them on cereal. For those of you not from central Texas, Stonewall is the center of peach production, though this year a late freeze nipped a good portion of the crop.

  • cup peeled, chopped peaches (about 1 small one)
  • 1 oz. local vodka
  • 1 oz. Paula's Texas Orange
  • oz. lime juice
  • 1-2 oz. well-chilled club soda
In a mixing glass, muddle peaches with PTO. Add vodka, lime juice, and ice and shake very well. Strain into rocks glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda and stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

From Dale Degroff's The Essential Cocktail


We were looking for something to do with Hendrick's Gin, and as usual, Dale came up with a great suggestion. He says the Southside was the long-running house drink at Club 21 dating back to the '30s when it was still a speakeasy. Because it uses club soda, this is a drier alternative to the gin and tonic and, especially with the fresh mint, is extremely refreshing on hot evenings.
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint
  • oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. Paula's Texas Lemon (substituted for simple syrup)
  • 1 oz. well-chilled club soda
Gently muddle 1 of the mint sprigs with the lemon juice in the bottom of a mixing glass. Add the gin and PTL and shake well. Pour over crushed ice in a goblet and stir until the outside of the glass frosts. Top with a splash of soda--up to 1 ounces, to taste--and garnish with the other sprig of mint.

Coolest drink in Austin!

Paula's Texas Orange is featured in Ranch 616's Brushfire, named The Coolest Drink in Austin by Your Austin Address & Lifestyle magazine. The Brushfire beat out cocktails from six other local establishments (who, regrettably, failed to use Paula's products in their entries). One contest judge said "I've never had a better drink in my life!" View the contest results at the online version of the magazine.

The Brushfire

1 oz. Tito's Vodka
1 oz. Paula's Texas Orange
1 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice

Shake well and serve in a martini glass with a cayenne chili salted rim and garnish with fresh sliced jalapenos.

Saveur touts Texas

Saveur magazine's June/July issue is all about Texas, and Austinites get a fair share of publicity. The magazine put together an article on Central Texas distilleries which unfortunately did not make the print publication but does appear online. A couple of quotes from my 30-minute phone interview appear.

Media Mentions

Paula's products are also showing up in the current editions of Edible Austin, L Style G Style, and Chili Pepper magazine.
