Corner Bar is still doing their normal free BBQ today at 3pm until it runs out (about the first 70 people)! $5 Tito’s and Tito’s Bloody Mary’s, $2.50 Bud and Bud Light, and as always, free popcorn.

Welcome to 365 Things Austin’s Cocktail of the Week program. We’ve partnered with our friends at Sourced Craft Cocktails to announce a new cocktail (available for delivery in Austin) each week. Whether you’re looking for a fun date night at home, or hosting a party that your guests won’t soon forget, Sourced delivers EVERYTHING you need to make mixologist-worthy craft cocktails.

Originally crafted by Australian born Sam Ross at the famous Milk + Honey lower east side NYC bar, this cocktail will fix whatever ails you!


The Penicillin combines luscious, soothing flavors of honey, fresh ginger, and hand squeezed lemon juice fortified with a healthy dose of blended Scotch whisky. Shaken and poured over a flawless, hand cut artisan ice rock, we finish this life saving remedy with thin pour of Islay Malt to top with a wood smoked aromatic fragrance.

Go ahead, the doctor will see you now!


Johnnie Walker – Black:

The iconic squared bottle isn’t the only thing smooth…this premiere spirit takes Scotch from the four corners of Scotland and blends together into silky pure amber gold. Perfected in 1909 and exclusively featuring whiskies with a minimum of 12 years aging, this rich, complex Scotch offers the perfect balance of dark fruits, sweet vanilla and it’s signature smokiness.

Honey/Ginger Syrup:

The “medicinal properties” of our Penicillin may/may not be found in Mr. Walker’s Black Label. They are absolutely found in our homemade Honey/Ginger Syrup. Locally sourced Austin honey is combined with richly muddled fresh ginger to deliver velvety goodness…to use the technical medical term.

Fresh Lemon Juice:

We hand squeeze fresh lemon juice every single morning. You’re busy, we’ve sourced the absolute freshest product possible to help you add the acidity to this balanced cocktail.

Islay of Scotch:

Ahhh, the secret…we love sourcing the secret ingredient for you. After pouring your medicine over the perfect hand cut artisan ice rock we provide, we help you with a heady “aromatic.” What, you ask, is an “aromatic” for I thought we were drinking? Glad you asked…this wood smoked smell is placed right on the top of the rock so as you take each sip your nose alerts your brain that we’re now in the comfort of a roaring fire and well on our way back to health!
