Austin's good ol' boys blushed like schoolgirls when the University of Texas Longhorns donned special gear for a K-State bout last fall. Team members paraded onto the field slicked out in rose-colored socks, gloves and warm-up sneakers – no doubt getting a little ribbing from their backcountry brethren who didn't get the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month memo.
With the Longhorns ranked second nationally for all-time bowl game participation, now is the perfect time to toast this civic-minded team with a Lone Star-inspired drink that's in the pink. Muddle one strawberry and 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice in a mixing glass. Add 1/2 oz. simple syrup, 1 1/2 oz. Tito's vodka, 1/2 oz. Licor 43 and 1 oz. combined of Angry Orchard apple cider and ginger beer. Shake well, double strain and serve chilled. Garnish with strawberry slices.

Holiday Spiced Manhattan
Despite prominent mention in the song “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” figgy pudding never quite made it to American holiday tables – perhaps because the fruitcake-like dessert was banned by English Puritans for its alcohol co...
