The 6th Annual Austin Cocktail Throw-down took place at the Gibson Guitar Showroom on September 24, 2009. Finalists competed for the title of “Official Drink of Austin,” with their signature cocktails featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Ross Outon, the host of the upcoming reality show “The Winemakers”, was the celebrity emcee for the evening. The five local restaurant finalists included Fino, Paggi House, Lost Pines Resort, La Condesa and Stephen F’s Bar and Terrace.
The winning cocktail, the “Enlightened Austin Martini”, was created by Nate Wales of La Condesa. The crowd pleasing martini was made with Tito’s Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, organic juiced watermelons, agave nectar and a hint of lime. Stop by La Condesa and taste for yourself, try the new Official Drink of Austin, featuring Tito’s!
