Sway, the award-winning Thai restaurant located in South Austin, is now offering liquor and specialty cocktails in addition to its wide selection of wine, beer and sake. The new program features Thai takes on classic cocktails, using fresh herbs, housemade syrups and local ingredients to create a signature menu.
“Developing each cocktail was an exercise in flavor balance and celebrating the distinct flavors of Thailand,” says Mandi Nelson, Beverage Director of New Waterloo. “They can hold up to the heat of Sway’s cuisine without getting lost or be overpowering. Our cocktails are as lovely as they are delicious, and they serve as the perfect complement to our food menu.”
In addition to specialty cocktails, guests can also now enjoy mixed drinks or add a spirit of their choosing to Sway’s housemade sodas and drinking vinegars.
