Cocktail Menu: Bar Congress in Austin, Texas

Good cocktail menus in Texas are sprouting like oil wells. (Maybe tumbleweeds? I'm at a loss for good Texas analogy.)

Adam Bryan, bar manager of Bar Congress in Ausin, sent me the menu. This bar is one of three venues in the Austonian residence tower and it just opened at the end of 2010.

I like it because of the multiple vinegar drinks.
