May Drink of the Month


Compliments of Andrew Perez,
Moonshine Grill, Austin

This drink is too smooth to qualify as moonshine, but if you're not careful, it could make you crazy like moonshine....
  • 1.5 oz. Treaty Oak Rum
  • 1 oz. Paula's Texas Lemon
  • 2 lemon wedges
  • 4 large mint leaves
  • Fresh lemonade
  • POM pomegranate juice
  • Grapefruit juice (optional)

Muddle* lemon wedges, mint, Treaty Oak rum, and Paula's Texas Lemon in a tall glass.  Fill glass with ice. Add a generous splash of POM and optional dash of grapefruit juice. Top off with lemonade. Garnish with a mint sprig.

* What is muddling? Simply mashing, or crushing, the fruit and herbs with a pestle or wooden spoon to release the flavors.


Here's one to toast your "genius" of a graduate.

  • 3 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. Paula's Texas Orange
  • Splash of Extra Dry Martini & Rossi vermouth

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass.

This is a GREAT drink for parties. It is light and refreshing and goes a long way. Make up a big pitcher for guests to serve themselves.

May and June: Party Central

May and June offer opportunities for parties galore:
  • Mother's Day
  • Graduations
  • Memorial Day
  • Weddings
  • Summer solstice
Don't serve the same old tired wine and beer. Impress your friends with Paula's Texas Spirits cocktails. Our liqueurs go great with just about any other spirit, or they pack enough of a punch to stand on their own in lighter-style drinks.

Party tips from Paula
  • Plan on a couple of cocktails. Pair a stout cocktail like Paula's Margarita with a lighter alternative like Paula's Punch, or Paula's Lemonade with Apples 'n' Oranges Fizz.
  • Mix up all ingredients except club soda ahead of time. Add club soda at the last minute so drinks don't go flat.
  • Buy lime and lemon juice already squeezed at Central Market or look for Goodflow. Have fresh citrus on hand for garnish.
  • Serve cocktails in pretty pitchers for self-service and put out signs so guests know what they are drinking.
  • Keep ice handy in an insulated plexiglas tub for self-service by the glass. Keep ice in pitchers to a minimum so as not to water down drinks.
  • For champagne or Prosecco drinks, make sure ingredients stay very cold throughout the party. Put them in the freezer for a while just before the party starts.
  • Make sure you have plenty on hand because your guests will love your yummy drinks! Figure a minimum of 2 4-ounce drinks per guest. A bottle of Paula's is about 25 ounces.
  • Have a pitcher of water available, too, and make sure drivers drink responsibly.
