Today’s Groupon invites you do what the name of the business says with a $35 gift card for $15 at Drink Cocktail Bar. Your Groupon is good for any of the tasty social lubricants at Drink, and the card that can be used over multiple visits, so there's no need to go crazy in one drinking. Redeem your Groupon at Drink and you'll be presented with a shiny new drink debit device.
Drink's cocktails hold pride of place, with nearly 40 handcrafted, flavorful mixes available. Drink’s talented mixologists have access to more than 200 liquors, everything from local favorites to rare single-malt Scotch to stuff with more malts than can be described without delving into quadratic theory. Barkeeps craft each drink for unique flavor and, unlike at most places, always use fresh ingredients. No sweet and sour ever touches a Drink margarita—only real limejuice for this high-maintenance libation. Joining it on the list of Drink’s $8 signature cocktails is a carefully crafted hurricane, mojito, and other favorites.
Drink also shakes up some delectable martinis ($8), including a treat with another instructionally useful name, the Flirtini, made with champagne, vodka, pineapple, and a Chambord float. Classic cocktails ($7) include all your favorite hazard-denominated nightcaps, from the kamikaze to the mudslide. For companions who like a little less saccharine in their intoxicators, Drink also has a good mix of wines and beers.
Drink’s happy hour, 5 p.m.–7 p.m. daily, makes some of its most popular drinks available for $4.95, including the signature margarita, the Drink bloody Mary with extra fourishes like lemon juice and Tabasco, or the Kir Royale, made with real French champagne mixed with crème de cassis. For $4.95, you can also sip Drink’s favorite wines—the Carousel champagne, Lindeman’s chardonnay, or Columbia Crest cabernet sauvignon.
The cocktailery's modern lounge atmosphere, with leather couches and small tables, makes it a fantastic destination for after-work relaxation. The lounge also shares the popular River Walk public space with countless other restaurants, attractions, and entertainment venues—meaning it’s a good idea to have a Groupon on hand at the end of the night when cocktail cravings draw your spirit drinkward.
The San Antonio Current loves Drink Cocktail Bar:
- Even truncated, Drink’s wine list is as refreshingly eclectic and wide-ranging as the local art that usually adorns the walls at this comfortable and clubby hangout. – Ron Bechtol
