Tito’s Handmade Vodka
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ first and oldest legal distillery. It’s made in small batches in an old fashioned pot still
by owner Tito Beveridge (yes, that is his actual name), and distilled six times.
- 1.5 Tito’s Vodka
- 1oz Grand Marnier
- 1oz fresh sour
- 1.5 oz fresh orange juice

Shake into a cocktail glass and add a lemon spiral.
Cola de Lagarto
Cola de Lagarto means “tail of the lizard,” a reference to the green color that the creme de menthe adds to the drink. Wine cocktails have been unfairly associated with overly sweet wine cooler. But the renewed interest in classic cocktails has brought this category back into favor. The ingredients in this recipe may seem a bit strange, but they actually go together nicely.
To make the Cola de Lagarto, combine 3/4 cup white wine, 1/3 cup vodka, one tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice and one teaspoon white sugar or one teaspoon simple syrup in a shaker and shake well. Strain the drink into a tall, chilled glass and garnish with a mint sprig.
