Spring is finally here with summer just right around the corner, which means it’s patio season. I just rounded up my favorite patios in Austin to wine and dine – there are a couple of new spots that you might not know about so be sure to check out the guide!
Grab the girlfriends and enjoy this beautiful weather before it gets too hot. I hung out with Chelsea and Linda in Jacoby’s rustic backyard overlooking the river this week sipping on Brass Apple Smoked Cocktails with Fire Flask!
This drink reminds me of summertime barbecuing with friends, using fresh cider for basting, the smell of hickory smoke is a reminder of some unforgettable times. – Mike Paulus, beverage director of Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile
Mike Paulus, the beverage director of Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile, showed us how to make the Brass Apple Smoked Cocktail with Fire Flask. Fire Flask was born in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains and hand-crafted to be the perfect alternative to popular cinnamon liquor brands. Expertly made in small batches at the brewery nestled between North and South Carolina, Fire Flask is as smooth as the rolling hills where it originates, crafted with a perfect cinnamon flavor.
Cinnamony with scents of orange and apple makes the Brass Apple Smoked Cocktail perfect for summer barbecues! Try making this cocktail at home with a smoking gun for a smoky cocktail that’s sure to impress. The smoke makes for a fun party trick!
COCKTAIL TIP: Quickly cover cocktails with a coaster to hold the smoke in and serve immediately.
