Desert Door Texas Sotol
Where we've featured it
Desert Door Sotol is a distillery that specializes in sotol - a spirit that, to the uninitiated, can best be described as a distant cousin of tequila, made from the sotol plant that grows in abundance in the Texas Hill Country. It’s bright, a bit grassy, and very versatile - making it a perfect substitute in classic cocktails like their Desert Paloma or Sotol’d Fashioned. The space here is beautiful - the interior rich with a West Texas aesthetic that would feel just at home in Marfa as it does out here. And that thoughtful design extends to their covered patio - beautifully lit, and peppered with local flora. The live music playing on most nights is easy to get lost in, but the sotol plants lining the borders and surrounding landscape will quickly remind you that you are, in fact, in the heart of sotol country. And if you get hungry, there’s a great food trailer outside called Eden West. Desert Door is definitely one of our favorite spots in the area.
