    The menu contains 108 classic cocktails. They're divided by spirit and subdivided into six preparations: on the rocks, shaken up, tall & cool, stirred up, served long, and fizzes, flips & sours.

    Weatherup's goal is to showcase ice, which to her is the most important element in cocktails. She makes 300 pound block ice with a Clinebell ice maker meant for ice sculptors.

    Sit at the bar, these are craft cocktails and they take a while to make... You'll probably get the quicker if you're right in front if them, not to mention you'll get water refills easily.

    Ordering off the cocktail menu is awesome, but they can make drinks specific to you if you provide a liquor and flavor palate! Mussels were DIVINE! Great bar atmosphere and patio.

    This NYC import ain't messin' around: It has a novella-length cocktail list and harvests its ice from 300-pound crystal blocks. That's the type ice sculptors use – perfect for craft cocktail art.

    Craft cocktails in East Austin with a really pretty garden patio area with huge trees. Perfect for sitting outside

    Most of the seating is out back in their little garden. Great for nice spring and summer evenings.

    The New York cocktail spot's Austin outpost on the Eastside is a great place to grab a swanky drink.

    If you want a stunning drink, the Hotel Nacional can't be beat. No happy hour prices, but after a couple of drinks, you'll be happy, promise.

    They aren't open until 2am every night, making them something of an outlier in Austin, and occasionally throwing a wrench in plans.

    Not sure what drink to order? Name a spirit and have your bartender surprise you. You won't be disappointed.

    Get the East Side Ricky - gin with cucumbers, mint and other goodness. Like a mojito but better

    The only spot in Austin with a serious ice program, using a Clinebell ice maker. Drinks here never disappoint.

    Ask for the "Amber Demure," which I made up- it's tequila, grapefruit, honey, and champagne!
