If you’re looking for a sweet, boozy treat for a weekend barbecue, we've got it.

This summery, lemon dessert created by Austin’s mobile bakeshop, Casa de Glaze, is delicious on its own, or you can top it off with ice cream and fresh berries. There’s a healthy serving of Tito’s Handmade Vodka in the cake and glaze, which both perfects the texture and adds some extra zing to the flavor.

The sweet cake pairs perfectly with a refreshing All American Lemonade or a Tito’s All Time Favorite. You could also cut a piece for brunch and pair it with a Tito’s Screwdriver. What are long weekends for anyway? It doesn’t make you a bad person.
