Three things about me:

  • I am always down for a good party.
  • I am always willing and ready to have a good time.
  • I love a good cocktail.

Some of my favorite cocktail drinks would be Moscow mules, dirty martinis, and a whiskey sour. If I’m going to drink any of these, you better believe that this Texan right here is going to have a beverage that was made in the Lone Star State!

A lot of your favorite alcoholic beverages come from distilleries right here in Texas - some as close as Central Texas.

Here are some of my favorite spirits from our great state.

Deep Eddy Vodka

If you want the best lemon drop or southern comfort peach island ice tea, Deep Eddy is the way to go. Not only is Deep Eddy one of my favorite vodkas, but it’s literally located down the street from me.

The Deep Eddy distillery is located in our state capital, Austin, Texas. You can even go and take tours of the distillery. Not to brag, but I’ve been more than enough times. I don’t have a drinking problem - the problem is I don’t have a drink in my hand!

Tito's Vodka

After a hard day of work, one of my all time favorite wind-down drinks would have to be a dirty martini.
Now this is always a controversial discussion due to the fact that some people believe martinis are made with gin, and some people think that martinis should be made with vodka.
I am most definitely team vodka, and Tito‘s vodka (which is also made in Austin Texas) is by far the best ingredient to make the perfect martini.
Trust me - that recipe will not let you down!

Rebecca Creek

For an amazingly smooth whiskey, Rebecca Creek is what you need .
This whiskey is not for the weak. Rebecca Creek is smooth but very strong! I prefer my whiskey the old fashioned way: just two ice cubes and a twist of lime. OMG, so delicious.
Cheers, Central Texas, and enjoy a taste of Texas!

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
