So your New Year’s resolution is to be healthier, but you’re not ready to give up alcohol completely. We don’t totally blame you — which is why we’re here to deliver a dose of good news. Picnik, everyone’s favorite paleo-friendly food truck turned brick-and-mortar ATX staple, is now offering craft cocktails. And they’re totally guilt-free.
Guilt-free cocktails are a win-win
In keeping with their theme, each cocktail they’re offering is gluten-free and filled with natural ingredients. As of now, Picnik has released six cocktails available only at their brick-and-mortar off Burnet. And since it’s no secret Austinites love their margs, you might be delighted to hear that one of these guiltless indulgences is, in fact, a margarita. And word on the street is that all these drinks are pretty darn good.
Drink up the good
Customers trust in the real, healthy ingredients that Picnik offers. It’s exactly why owner Naomi Seifter stayed true to Picnik’s roots, wanting the “focus to be exclusively on spirits that were clear in color and derived from real food ingredients like potato or agave…”
And that’s exactly what you can expect from the beautifully-colored, healthy cocktails. The Margarita features organic tequila, pink dragonfruit, lime, and local honey, complete with a Himalayan sea salt rim. Accompanying it, a Mezcal Old Fashioned topped with maple syrup, orange, and bitters; a Spicy Paloma using organic tequila, grapefruit, serranos, cilantro, raw local honey, lime, and bubbles; and, of course, the delicious Strawberry Basil Collins, made from potato gin, strawberry, basil, raw local honey, and lemon. We won’t give it all away though. Head over to Picnik to check out the full cocktail menu.
If we haven’t gotten your attention yet, we’re not sure what will. Plus, the new cocktail menu comes with new Happy Hour prices. Head over to Picnik from 3-6pm every Monday through Friday to enjoy $2 off these crazy cocktails (plus deals on snacks that are too good to be true).
So, instead of completely abandoning your New Year’s resolutions, sip on one of Picnik’s latest craft cocktails for a guilt-free adult beverage that’s packed with nutrients and feel-good treats.
