El Rincon, a local, family-owned Mexican restaurant, recently opened its THIRD location in Addison Circle earlier this year. This authentic spot’s first location opened in Carrollton in 2016, and they’ve been a neighborhood favorite since. They bring together a house blend of Herradura Anejo Tequila (that they went to Mexico to pick themselves), Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar Beyond great cocktails, killer specials/HHs, and curated spirits list, El Rincon offers tastings and specials to help their customers appreciate spirits.

Having a stack of rocks glasses I think is the classiest look on a bar car, and I think these Talking Out of Turn rocks glasses ($20, set of 4) really make an impact. Cocktail tools are NOT the place to buy cheap; you want tools that will be reliable. Look for classic Texas cocktail recipes and signature cocktails from your favorite bars across the great state complete with the stories behind them and lovely photography. The space on a bar car is obviously limited, so if you run out of room, you can use something like this metallic wine total from Talking Out of Turn ($18) to hang a bottle on the side.

🌕 BLUE MOOOOOOON … I SAW YOU DRINKING ALOOOOOONE … 🌕 I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of spooky cocktails this week, so I wanted to give you one that, well … isn’t. I heard that this Saturday will give us a treat beyond a sugar-induced coma; it will be the first time since 1944 that the entire world will be able to see a blue moon on Halloween. I wanted to give y’all a truly blue cocktail, so I turned to my friends at @Empress1908Gin. Their vivid indigo-colored gin (naturally colored so thanks to one of the botanicals in it being butterfly pea flower) isn’t just nice to look at; this hand-crafted gin out of Canada has notes of juniper, rose, coriander seed, grapefruit peel, ginger, and butterfly pea. These worked nicely with the cocktail I chose below. BLUE MOON 2 oz Empress 1908 Gin 1/3 oz Giffard Pampelmousse 1/3 oz dry vermouth 1/3 oz @tealeavesco Classic Blue tea Garnish with a citrus peel Brew tea. Stir ingredients together with ice. Strain into chilled glass. Express citrus and garnish with peel. Cocktail No. 13 from Empress, imagined by Tracey Eden, Empress 1908 Gin New York Brand Ambassador. #AD #empressgin #empress1908gin #gin #gincocktail #halloweencocktails #cocktailrecipes #liqpic #cocktailrecipe #cocktailrecipes #cocktail #craftcocktail #mixology #drinkstagram #drinkoftheday #imbibegram #cocktailsofinstagram  #cocktailhour #drinkingfortheinsta #FoodGawker #feedfeedcocktails #feedfeed #thefeedfeed

🐝 SAVE THE BEES … WHILE DRINKING WHISKY 🥃⠀ ⠀ I’m all abuzz … just sitting here sipping on a cocktail I just made using Aberfeldy and honey (recipe below) and reading about their Bee Informed Partnership. ⠀ ⠀ For this partnership, the scotch label teamed up with local beekeepers across the US to “improve honeybee colony health and increase colony survivorship.” What a sweet partnership!⠀ ⠀ BUZZ BUZZ⠀ 2 oz Aberfeldy 12 Year Scotch Whisky⠀ 1 oz lemon juice⠀ .75 oz cinnamon-honey syrup⠀ ⠀ Combine Aberfeldy, lemon, and syrup in a shaker and shake with ice until well chilled. Strain over fresh ice and garnish with a lemon.⠀ ⠀ *cinnamon-honey syrup: boil 1 cup water with four cinnamon sticks. Let sit for 10 minutes and stir in honey until incorporated. Allow to cool before using in your cocktail. (Best if cinnamon sticks are kept in overnight.) Store in the fridge and it’ll be good for a week.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Aberfeldy #BeeInformed #aberfeldywhisky #scotch #scotchwhisky #scotchcocktail #draaaaanks #drinks #cocktails #cocktail #cocktailporn #cheers #instadrinks #instadrink #drinkstagram #imbibe #imbibegram #drinkingfortheinsta #drinks #dranks #booze #liqpic #imbibegram #WeLoveToDrink #FoodAndWine

🧯💨 🍾⠀ ⠀ Anyone else’s week already making them feel like they need one of these?

✈️ BACK IN THE AIR ✈️⠀ ⠀ I hopped on a plane this week to visit my sister’s family and babysit for a week. I usually don’t drink when I visit them, so I went for one of Suntory’s new zero-ABV beer.⠀ ⠀ Suntory All-Free is a bright, malty “beer” for those of us who want to partake without the ABV (or the calories). So it seemed a perfect celebratory #30000ftcocktails drink for my first flight since early summer. ⠀ ⠀ Would you drink an alcohol-free beer?⠀

🥃 THIS WHISKEY IS MUSIC TO YOUR MOUTH 🥃⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ My friends down in Austin at @still_atx did it again ... they just released their new flagship straight bourbon whiskey, “The Musician”, and it's pretty great, y'all. ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ With 100% Texas grown grains, this bottle is a taste of Texas ringing in at 70% white corn, 25% rye, and 5% malted barley. And all that's music to my ears.⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ But the perfect harmony of grain doesn't stop there ... they worked on this expression for six years. So, while the whiskey's age statement is just two years, but drinks like an older bottle. ⠀⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ My friends at Still Austin want YOU to try this fantastic juice, so I worked it out with them so one of you can get the same setup I got ...⠀⁣ - a bottle of Still Austin “The Musician” Bourbon⠀⁣ - a Still Austin rocks glass⠀⁣ - a Still Austin t-shirt
⠀⁣ - a record (think @leonbridgesofficial's "Good Things"
 (pictured) or St. Vincent's "Masseducation")⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 To enter to win this whiskey package …⠀⠀⁣ 🤍 Like this post.⠀⠀⁣⠀⁣⠀⠀⁣ ➕ Make sure you're following me (@susiedrinks).⠀⁣ @ mention someone that you’ll listen to the whiskey with (yes, I said that right) …⠀⁣ 💬 Comment as many times as you’d like — every comment with a mention is an entry!⠀⁣ ⨁ Share this in your stories for FIVE extra entries. (Make sure to tag me so I know you shared it.)⠀⠀⁣⠀⁣⠀⠀⁣ 🏆 I’ll pick a winner Monday at 5pm.⠀⠀⁣⠀⁣⠀⠀⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Buy yourself a bottle at a TEXAS liquor store (Total Wine & More and CostCo), visit the distillery, or make a Texan friend to find one for you.⁣ ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Must be 21 to win and all that.

🏝 TAKE ME TO TULUM 🏝⠀ ⠀ Two years ago I was in Tulum with my friend @iamsarahmize ... cenote hopping and sipping cocktails and eating fresh fish at a beach restaurant. Anytime I’m trying to decide where to go on my next trip, Tulum pops into my head ... I loved it that much. ⠀ ⠀ Thinking of going to the hipster beach town? Check out my travel guide on my website for my favorite stops.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ (And no, I have no idea why I was sitting that way. Couldn’t have been comfortable. 🤷🏼‍♀️)⠀ 📸: @iamsarahmize

🍸 IT'S A PEARL 🍸⠀ ⠀ Yesterday evening we explored the Pearl District of San Antonio. Centered around Hotel Emma, a hotel housed in the former Pearl Brewery (active 1883-2001), this 22-acre district has a handful of amazing eateries, some started by CIA graduates (the third CIA campus is located at The Pearl).⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ Picture 1 & 2: Supper's dirty martini & Cowboy's Paradise (gin, meloncello, cilantro simple syrup, lime, tahini)⠀⠀ Picture 3: Hotel Emma from the Riverwalk, 📸by @iamsarahmize⠀⠀ Video 4: an art installation under the I-35 overpass, F.I.S.H. by Donald Lipiski, 📸 by @iamsarahmize⠀⠀ Picture 5 & 6: Boiler House's whiskey bacon caramel popcorn & Judgment Day (whiskey, amaretto, honey simple syrup, Last Judgment red blend)⠀

🍹 CHEERS TO SAN ANTONIO 🍹⠀ ⠀ I’m spending a couple nights in San Antonio with my friend @iamsarahmize and a visit to SA isn’t complete without a quick visit to @mitierracafesa at the market. ⠀ ⠀ We’ll be checking out more of the city (at least what’s open) over the next couple days and also checking out the new @thompsonsanantonio (opening early 2021), so keep eye out for some more snaps on stories!

Rollin’ out for the weekend ... 🍷💨⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @theaaronhendrickson

🍉🔥 GRILL YOUR COCKTAIL 🔥🍉⁣⁣⠀⁣⁣⁣ How about a new take on a favorite summer cocktail ingredient to take it into (early) Fall?
