Along Came A Cider

Celebrate Texas Sotol Day with a fall cocktail straight from Driftwood.


Desert Door Distillery

When an authority figure proclaims a day of drinking, what can we do but abide? Tomorrow, Fri, Nov 16, is official Texas Sotol Day, according to the Mayor of Austin, so we teamed up with our friends at Desert Door in Driftwood for a spiked sip recipe you'll be thankful for when the relatives arrive.
Sotol Cider
1.5 oz Desert Door sotol
3 oz pure apple cider
Mulling spices
Directions: Bring cider to a boil with mulling spices. Let cool. Add to shaker with sotol. Shake over ice. Strain into glass filled with ice and garnish with cinnamon and apple slice. Enjoy! 
Desert Door distillery hosts the Wild Texas Music Series tomorrow, Fri, Nov 16, from 7 - 10 p.m.—vintage vinyl shopping, live music and bites from Licha's Cantina.
