Here are some quality brands to help you make Texas-sized margaritas, Mexican martinis, mojitos, mai tais, and more.

Build Your Texas Bar: The Mixers

Part Seven of our Build Your Texas Bar series features a variety of mixers, several syrups, and one brand of bitters. It’s no surprise that the brands of Texas-made mixers are dominated by margarita mixes. But there are also offerings among this group for making mojitos and mai tais, and between the offerings from Liber & Co. and Mad Dog Bitters, a whole menu’s worth of classic and creative cocktails.
