The Texas Toast

Toast: Frozen Sangria from El Chilito Tacos Y Cafe

This week we deviate slightly from the norm and we feature something that isn’t a beer. I know, shocking. Last year, we considered ourselves strickly beer drinkin’ Texas gals, but under the influence of TheMaskedWino we’re branching out. Before we dive head first into the many luscious Oktoberfest and fall brews available, enjoy a nice chilly Sangria while it is still 90 degrees out.

If you need a little chilly with your chilies, hit up El Chilito.

A longtime favorite of your bloggers, El Chilito offers a frozen Sangria that is simply amazing. The large is $3.95 (don’t wimp out and get the small. This is Texas bucko. In fact, order two because you’re such a lush.)

Do we know what is in it? Nope. Do we know how many calories? Nope. And we don’t care, thankyouverymuch. Great atmosphere, great prices, and great grub.

El Chilito is located at 2209 Manor Drive, Austin, Tejas 78722. If you’ve never been before, it is an outdoor cafe and takeout joint. Our executive recommendation to pair with your frozen Sangrias? Try the Carne Asada taco or burrito. Delicious.

Check out the whole menu here.

Rating: 5 out of 5. Oh, and did we mention you can get them To Go? It’s totally a closed container until you put a straw in it.
