Craftsman Creates Four Mimosa Cocktails and Launches Brunch Menu November 22nd
Since the start of this year’s NFL Season, Craftsman bar, located at 2000 E. Caesar Chavez Street, has quickly become one of the East Side’s most popular spots for football fans to grab a drink and catch their favorite team’s game. To give their guests everything an NFL fan needs to enjoy the game, owner Brandon Testa and the Craftsman crew have worked through the past month to perfect a unique ‘Sunday Funday’ drink menu featuring Austin’s first foray into mimosa-cocktails.
“I wanted to introduce a completely new spin on the mimosa that no one in Austin had seen before,” said Testa. “With a little experimentation, our team discovered mimosas combined with some carefully concocted cocktail recipes are delicious!”
Craftsman’s ‘Sunday Funday’ menu features four mimosa-cocktails available all-Sunday-long, including the Old Fashioned Mimosa with whiskey, Angostura Bitters, sugar, and bubbles for $5; the ScrewMosa with vodka, orange juice, and bubbles for $5 (or add Peach Schnapps for an additional $1); the Mai Tai Mimosa with rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, Orgeat syrup, and bubbles for $5; and the ManMosa which is simply a Lone Star beer combined with fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice for $3.
To compliment Craftsman’s new mimosa-cocktail menu, Testa also teamed with his culinary counterpart, Chef Nestor Mendez, the proprietor of the Pueblo Viejo food trucks, which are located in front of Craftsman as well as 907 East 6th Street. As football fans settle in to watch the second half of the NFL season, Pueblo Viejo will launch Craftsman’s first brunch program with a focus on authentic Mexican cuisine this Sunday, November 22nd at 11 a.m.
The brunch menu is comprised of four authentic Mexican choices including Huevos Rancheros with two fried eggs topped with grilled tomatoes, onions, and hot ranchero sauce with a side of two tortillas, refried beans, and sautéed potatoes for $5.99; Huevos a la Mexicana with two scrambled eggs mixed with sautéed potatoes, Pico de Gallo, Monterey Jack cheese, and topped with fresh avocados with a side of bacon, refried beans, and two tortillas for $5.99; Tacos Don Chago with eggs, refried beans, Monterey Jack cheese, bacon, and fresh avocados for $3; and a vegetarian option of Tacos Mi Madre with sautéed mushrooms, jalapeños, spinach, Monterey Jack cheese, and the option of scrambled eggs for $3.
And for all of the football and non-football fans alike who prefer a more standard, breezy brunch beverage, guests can also order Craftsman’s House Mimosa for $3 or a six-pack of Tecate for only $10.
“Our goal is to create an environment where everyone from the most die-hard football fans to the biggest brunch aficionados can all have the perfect Sunday Funday together,” said Testa. “With the addition of our mimosa-cocktail menu, the launch of our weekly brunch, and our more classic specials, we plan to make every Sunday Austin’s favorite and most affordable day of the week.”
