Cool Down, Drink Up
5 cider drinks made for lingering after a Houston workout
Whether you're winding down from a workout or just wrapping up a long day at the office, everyone needs a cool-down period. Make it even more enjoyable with a cocktail using Austin Eastciders Brut Super Dry, a light and refreshing sip that's reminiscent of Champagne and only boasts 100 calories.
Here are five suggested activity and cocktail pairings — though if you want to go rogue and mix them up, we won't stop you.
Activity: A class at Republic Aerial Yoga or a brisk run on the Bayou.
Cool-down spot: R Bar
Cocktail: Eastciders Star Inversion. Named after an aerial yoga maneuver, this cocktail is a refreshing take on an Aperol spritz.
Activity: Cycling or jogging around Montrose, or even just avoiding heavy Houston traffic.
Cool-down spot: Rudyard's British Pub
Cocktail: Chill Pill for Houston Traffic. This delightful cocktail features Eastciders Brut Super Dry, Pierre Fernando dry curaçao, and Ouray Farms CBD oil from Colorado, garnished with fresh orange.
Activity: Yoga, a bike ride, or just hoofing it through the 'trose.
Cool-down spot: La Grange Houston
Cocktail: Et Tu BRUTe. Campari, in-house cold brew coffee, Averna, Brut Super Dry, and a splash of soda is garnished with fresh grated nutmeg and a dehydrated grapefruit wheel. Enjoy it on the patio and stretch your recovery period to include $15 bucket specials on mix-and-match Eastciders cans. Pro tip: If you ride your bike or come in wearing running gear you get a discount on your first Eastciders cocktail. From November 26 through the holidays, head upstairs to Santa's Speakeasy for Instagrammable decor and specialty cocktails.
Activity: Rowing down the Waterway or jogging just beside it.
Cool-down spot: Mahoney's Texish Bar & Restaurant
Cocktail: Sometimes you just want it straight, and that's what Mahoney's gives you. Both Brut and pineapple cider are on tap, meaning you're not limited to only 12 ounces of bubbly refreshment.
Activity: Training for the Woodlands Marathon
Cool-down spot: Baker's Street Pub & Grill
Cocktail: Looking to keep your calories low? Grab a glass of Brut (it's only 100 per 12 ounces) or try the seasonal draft.
