Lone Star Punch

Lone Star Punch is an original concoction of Hill Country, a barbecue restaurant located on West 26th Street in New York City. Lone Star Punch contains Lone Star Beer and vodka, plus lemon juice and a splash of grenadine.

Something called “Texas Punch” also exists, but there is no standard recipe for such a drink.

At Hill Country (30 W. 26th St., between Broadway and Sixth Avenue, 212-255-4544), the Michaelita, named after owner Marc Glosserman’s father, incorporates Tecate beer, tequila, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, lime juice and Hill Country’s barbecue dry rub on the rim instead of salt ($7). Hill Country also makes another “beertail,” a growing category of cocktails with a beer base. Like everything in the new barbecue joint, the Lone Star Punch ($7) is a tribute to Texas. It’s made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka from Austin, lemon juice, Lone Star beer and a splash of grenadine. Like the others, it’s served on the rocks.
