CHEERS to to the close of 2020. This year has wreaked havoc on the world in general and our industry in particular, but we are still here, hanging on for dear life, servicing the handful of events that have marked our very pared-down calendar. We extend an enthusiastic ๐Ÿ™ T H A N K Y O U ๐Ÿ™ to our amazing clients, to our fellow planners and event vendors who also continue to persevere, and to our beautifully soulful bartending team, without whom we would be able to operate at all.

And we grieve for the many people who have not survived this catastrophe. which has disproportionately affected people of color. And we mourn the countless small businesses that have had to shutter, because when there's no business, there's no business. We see you and we feel for you. You are all in our hearts as we usher in a new year, one that will no doubt be just as challenging. Here we go. ๐Ÿ’—

Sometimes it's the little things, like a pretty glass and a peel of grapefruit, that elevate a simple cocktail to showstopper status. Pictured here ๐Ÿธ High Fashion ๐Ÿธ a shaken cocktail with gin, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, rhubarb bitters and of course, the pretty peel.

Get our D E L I S H Lavender Lemonade cocktail (or mocktail) mixer! This weekend's orders are closed but we will have a few extras on hand at today's curbside @bossbabesATX headquarters, along with the craftHER boxes and Tito's care packages.

craftHER market is going on as planned this year, with one small change โ€“ it will be online. On weekends one (October 3 and 4) and two (October 10 and 11) of craftHER Market, the fair will offer craftHER curbside. Stop by each weekend to pick up a craftHER box or curated meals and cocktails from their restaurant and bar partners, Emojiโ€™s Grilled Cheese, Nixta Taqueria and yours truly, Drink Slingers!

Every person who stops by craftHER curbside on October 3, 4, 10 and 11 will also receive a physical copy of craftHER's Shop Small, Show Up Guide, which contains their virtual vendor lineup and how-tos on supporting local during this pandemic. It's gonna be fun, y'all and we hope you can join us in supporting local.

Shake all ingredients over ice with a cocktail shaker OR use two glasses and transfer mixture between them until mixed, then strain the mixture into a glass of any kind (because it's a pandemic, who cares what the glass looks like?). Garnish with a lime if you happen to have extra or save that puppy to squeeze into your margarita later. The rim of your glass may be sad, but it'll get over it eventually.

Now that the world has gone sideways, we have been wondering not only what to post, but what exactly to say and how to say it. So we've decided we will just post pretty pictures of our cocktails and share the recipes for you to try at home. We understand that it's unlikely that you will have all ingredients on hand so feel free to ask for substitution recs by sending us a message or asking in the comments.

๐Ÿธ T H E H E M I N G W A Y D A I Q U I R I ๐Ÿธ
2 oz light rum
1 oz Liber & Co. Rio Red Grapefruit Cordial
0.75 oz lime juice
0.25 Luxardo Maraschino
Shake all ingredients over ice (or pour between two glasses until mixed) and strain into a coupe glass (or whatever 'ol glass you have, fancy is a state of mind) and garnish with a lime wheel. Or forget the lime garnish altogether, since all it's going to do is sit there on the glass being sad and lonely and wishing it had a quarantine buddy.

We are so proud of and happy for our friends at Nixta Taqueria. They are the taco of the town right now!

We had the sincere pleasure of providing sips for their grand opening in October! The Spicy palomas made with Desert Door sotol paired perfectly their insanely delicious tacos. And our Cantina Caravan fit the vibe to a T(aco).

Pop by Nixta (2512 E 12th St) & say hi to Sara and Edgar, and delight in what Tribeza calls "complex flavors and textures thoughtfully incorporated into dishes that would make the ownersโ€™ parents and family proud".

GSC Crisis Fund

Please consider supporting this cause which is near and dear to our queer hearts.

The Gender and Sexuality Center at the University of Texas Austin are raising funds for their first ever Crisis Fund for Women and LGBTQIA+ students.

For the past month, they have been fundraising for the queer student who is outed to their parents and all of a sudden is cut off completely, the trans student who has no means to access medical care or the money to change their name so it matches the name on their research and resumes, the woman student who is struggling to access long term mental health treatment, and countless other examples of times students have needed a little extra help. We are a better UT Austin community when we help our friends in need.

Please donate what you can at https://hornraiser.utexas.edu/project/17036

Help HornRaiser raise $12,000 for the project: GSC Crisis Fund. Your gift will make a difference!

On Thursday we sat down with Myrriah Gossett and Mike Moody of Permanent RCRD Studios to record the first of four podcasts for Drink Slingers. It was SUPER fun to talk about how we started this business (through accidental mentorship), how it's different than other businesses like ours (it's a vibe and a culture) and how we've sustained it (through a combo of sheer determination and assemblage of an amazing team of humans).

Looking forward to the next recording.

And look at Nannette's blue hair!

Mo was awesome and really made our party so much fun! It was nice that she even dressed the part for our Speakeasy theme! It was nice to enjoy our guests rather than have to make them drinks or have them make their own! It also added to the atmosphere of our Speakeasy theme by having two signature cocktails which were very tasty and fun to offer (Texas old fashioned and the Aviator) I would highly recommend Drink Slingers for your next party and we will certainly hire them for our next one!
