With season two of Bridgerton ranking among the most popular TV shows, our thirst for the royal drama isn’t being quenched any time soon. However, we can satisfy our literal thirst with these exquisite beverages seemingly straight out of the British period drama. Here are six local bevvies to drink like you’re one of the Ton.
A stiff bourbon
Socializing at the Gentlemen’s Club with a glass of Bourbon in hand is a popular pastime in the show. We recommend one of Aerodrome Distilling’s exceptional quality Bourbons. Their four-year Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon replaces a younger bourbon’s youthful grain and yeast with a beautiful blend of vanilla, caramel, and wood. 401 Aviation Dr.
Lawn games with lemonade
A sunny day would likely bring the Bridgertons to play a game of Pall Mall – the precursor lawn game to croquet, much like it brings us, locals, to play cornhole at BUS. Yard games can appropriately be paired with BUS’s seasonal Lavender Lemonade in hand. Made with Fox & Seeker Meridian Gin, lavender simple syrup, lemon juice, and topped with Topo Chico, we’d like to think this might have been what Lady Danbury and Lady Bridgerton sipped on as onlookers to the game. 702 N Chaparral St.
A fine glass of red
Whether it was the Duke’s drink of choice or the delectable pairing at dinner with the Bridgertons, a fine glass of red is to be found accompanying every meal. Indulge the wine list at Elizabeth’s and surround yourself with beauty within the walls of the iconic Art Museum of South Texas. 1902 N Shoreline Blvd.
A gin & tea cocktail
For a Whistledown on the town, try the Hana cocktail at Dokyo Dauntaun. It is a perfect gin and tea cocktail with Roku Japanese gin, honey-infused jasmine tea, créme de violette, and lemon that Lady Whistledown would likely have in tow should she ever reveal herself. 424 N Chaparral St.
Don your mid-day gowns and suits and indulge in a delightful high tea experience at Bien Mérité. Set with a China teapot and cups, pick from five pastries and a scone, and a croissant with jam and butter served on a tiered plate for two. 1336 S Staples St.
A glass of bubbly or a few
The annual season of nightly soirees can be translated into an evening at The Post with flutes of champagne as your drink of choice. Raise a toast to the end of Season 2 with champagne from their extended list or a French 75 with gin, champagne, lemon juice, and a sugar cube. 411 Doddridge St #102
