Eastside Cocktail Crawl (Spring 2017)

Last month's Eastside Cocktail Crawl was way too much fun!

We started the day at Lustre Pearl East with their El Camino and made our way down Cesar Chavez to Craftsman for Moscow Mules. 

Once we headed a few doors down to Weather Up, the crew had a medley of colorful sips to choose from.

We were sooo surprised and impressed to see cocktail sippin' folks rockin' creative team gear!

So impressed that we're currently brainstorming contest ideas for the next go-around this fall!

Afterwards, we made our way up to East 6th and hit Collide ATX - a chef-driven restaurant and art space for more booze and grub.  

We ended the afternoon at the patio of all patios - Whisler's, where we reminisced about the afternoon and sipped on some mighty delicious Southsides.

A major shoutout goes to the incredibly accommodating bars that hosted us! Weather Up, Lustre Pearl East, Collide ATX, Whisler's and Craftsman - you guys are real gems! 

We'll be announcing a new fall date soon, so make sure you sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop!

A Kindred Table - Recap

A Kindred Table - Recap

Earlier this month, Revelry had the privilege of co-hosting a group of creative, lovely ladies at the studio for an ol' fashioned potluck with the talented Amanda of Butterfield Events.

Each guest was greeted with one of our founder Amberly's favorite things - a craft cocktail. In addition to her go-to Moscow Mules with Fever-Tree Ginger Beer, we also served up a tasty W&P Shake recipe - the Blackberry Fence Hopper. 

This beverage did not disappoint.  It was cool, sweet, refreshing, zesty and interestingly enough, the honey was the just enough to soothe. In case the endless list of adjectives didn't give it away, we are most definitely fans.  Can't wait to test out more recipes!

Amberly decided to make a quick stop to Frond Plant Shop to pick a couple of Margot Blair minis.  These unique and tiny arrangements always pack a punch. 

 Let's just say my hostess game was instantly elevated with these pretty little things adorning the table. 

The evening continued and the drinks kept flowing. Over old school funk and soul, we chatted about the stories behind our dishes, from favorite family recipes to thoughtfully store-bought finds ;)

Needless to say, these ladies did not disappoint. From Watermelon & Mango Salad to a fresh Strawberry Tart, we happily indulged. 

Many thanks to Molli of 10th Collection, who joined us and stepped up our potluck game with beautiful dishes and table accessories. 

Each dish was not only darn delicious, but surprisingly enough, served as a catalyst for us to get to know each other a little better.

We gleefully ended our night by losing ourselves in this masterpiece known as cake, baked fresh by Gal Friday

Shout out to all of the wonderful people we broke bread with, including Bianca (Anthemum), Mayra (The Photo Bus), Abigail (Carefully Crafted), Anastasia (The Identité Collective) and Stephanie (Bloom Creamery). It was truly a pleasure.

We would love to make A Kindred Table a staple in the Austin creative community.  We enjoy pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones and meeting new folks. If you're interested in being a part of the next one, then sign up for our newsletter here and follow #akindredtable to stay in the loop!

Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!

Sip + Brunch Recap

In June, we hosted our first round of Sip + Brunch at Weather Up in East Austin.  It was a hot one, but the drinks most definitely kept us cool on the spacious patio.

The kind bartender and our host, Fidel, was not only talented but incredibly knowledgable. He walked us through three cocktail recipes - the daiquiri, the Manhattan and the margarita.

We all practiced our skills with professional and stylish bar tools. Fidel covered the proper way to shake, stir and pour and everything in between. 

Chef  Kristine Kittrell completed the afternoon with her culinary magic. Bacon bites, cheese plates, chicken and waffles... you name it.  It was quite the treat getting to sample their delectable brunch menu.

As an added bonus, we provided each guest with a swag bag chockfull of local and creative goodies, like custom cocktail recipe cards from Emma Gundlach, Austin Beerworks Pearl Snap, gold paper straws and metal drink stirrers!

Lemon Elderflower Sparkler

Memorial Day is just around the corner! Since we are taking it easy this year, we decided to share a refreshing recipe that reflects just that.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 bottle cava, well-chilled
2 cups Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower Lemonade
2 lemons, juiced (about 1/4 cup) 
Raspberries, to garnish

(Makes 6 drinks)

Preparation

Pour the Elderflower Lemonade and the lemon juice together into their own container. The Lemonade is organic, but I thought it would be a nice touch to add fresh squeezed juice to bring out the flavor. Pour about 3 tablespoons of this mixture into a Champagne flute. Pour in enough cava to fill the glass 3/4 full...or to your liking. Swirl gently. Drop a few raspberries in that thing, say cheers, and sip!
