Week one of Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL) is behind us, and what remains are a few thousand Austinites who are sun-kissed, sleep deprived, and have had only 4 days to recuperate before taking on week two.  The team at Austin Food Magazine and Juice Society take music for the masses, and health filled cocktails seriously. In order to send you into week two with a fruit and veggie filled immune system, and with the cocktail talents of Darren Makowsky, we selected a list of our favorites for an ACL revival.

Juice Society

Juicy Ancho

3 ounces of Juice Society Spicy Citrus

½ ounce of Clement Premier Canne

1 ounce of Ancho Reyes

Start your morning with a spiced up citrus cocktail. Rim half of the glass with cayenne pepper and serve with a lemon wheel.

 

Juice Society

Gin & Juiced

3 ounces of Juice Society OMGreens

1 and ½ ounce of Hendrick’s Gin

¼ ounce of Simple Syrup

¼ ounce of lemon juice

Refreshing and nourishing in one tall glass. Add a small pinch of cayenne and shake to serve over ice with a twisted lemon wheel, or cucumber in the glass.

 

Juice Society

Golden Sunrise

3 ounces of Juice Society Golden Girl

1 ounce of Espolon Blanco Tequila

½ ounce of Clement Creole Shrubb

The days of the layered sunrise are history when this orange beauty is poured up. Add a small pinch of salt and shake to serve over ice. Garnish with 2 carrot spears.

 

Juice Society

Hydration Station

3 ounces of Juice Society Hydrator

1 and ½ ounces of Art in the Age Rhubarb

½ an ounce of simple syrup

¼ ounce of lemon juice

Get your hydration doubled by serving over crushed ice piled high in snow cone style. Top with a light sprinkle of Garam Masala. Add citrus slices, sans peel for a more dramatic and refreshing look.

 

Juice Society

Peppered SunDaze

3 ounces of Juice Society SunDaze

1 and ½ ounce Monkey Shoulder Blended Whiskey

¼ ounce of lemon juice

This is a perfect substitution for your classically spicy hangover cure, the Bloody Mary.  Add a slice of bell pepper and small pinch of black pepper to the shaker. Shake vigorously to create a slightly frothy pour.

 

Juice Society

Pure Dark Goth

3 ounces of Juice Society Activated Lemonade

1 and ½ ounce of Russell’s Reserve

¼ ounce of lemon juice

¼ ounce of simple syrup

This classy goth can be served up, with 3 blackberries dropped into the glass which will make an appearance when the darkness reveals the sweet surprise.
