Spring has sprung, and there is no better way to celebrate than on a patio with a cold cocktail in hand.
Another McGuire Moorman group hot spot is the infamous Perla's, located in the heart of South Congress. Now, we can't get enough of this oak-shaded patio and the nautical atmosphere during the summer. Not only does Perla's make a great cocktail, their food (oysters + lobsters shells and cheese + calamari) is delectable. Their variety of oysters will suite any seafood lover and the cocktails are the perfect taste of summer. You'll catch us on the patio sippin' on the Passenger (gin + lime + mint) and the SoCo Fizz (ruby red vodka + agave + lime + sparkling wine) all summer long.
Happy Hour - Monday-Friday, 3-6 PM // $0.50 off oysters + $2 off beverages
Zocolo, located off West Lynn next to Jeffrey's, is our go to Tex-Mex spot. We love the quick pay-at-the-counter process, the crispy chips + queso (hands down our favorite in Austin), and the margaritas. Y'all, the margs are sweet and strong. Trust us, order the sangria/margarita swirl carafe (or two) and take a seat on the breezy patio. Their entrees are great but we'll be honest, we really come for the margs. They also offer a Horchata Colada if you prefer something sweeter!
Happy Hour - Everyday, 3-6 PM // $3 glasses + $12 carafes, $2.50-$4.00 beers
By now, you've probably picked up on the fact we love a good margarita. Like any great Austinite, we know where to get our Tex-Mex...Santa Rita Cantina. We spent many a birthday here and always count on Santa Rita for an easy and delicious group dinner, but happy hour is definitely our favorite. They offer an array of drink and food specials at unbeatable prices. Plus, their suiza sauce is unbeatable. Bring your friends and do as we do and order a sangria margarita with salt and post up on their back patio with chips and queso in hand.
Happy Hour - Monday-Friday, 3-7 PM - Saturday-Sunday, 3-6 PM // $4.00 frozen ritas + $3.00 draft beer, all apps under $7
