Austin's Spring Cocktail - The Texas Bluebonnet Cocktail

Here in Austin, spring is in the air and the Lupinus Texensis (Texas Bluebonnets) are lining the highways.

Come on, admit it, you took the little ones to that big patch of bluebonnets on the Capital of Texas Highway and snapped a few photos. Can’t say that we blame you!

As with every special Austin occasion, our Austin event bartenders have found the perfect Austin cocktail to celebrate. Introducing, the Texas Bluebonnet Cocktail.

It is fast and a snap to make - here's how you do it:
