Austin Resort Offers Poptails With A Purpose

Lone Star Court, a retro-inspired resort in Austin, TX, is offering a selection of poptails, or cocktails served with popsicles. Priced at $12 each, the poptails include the tequila-based Lone Star Sunrise, the vodka-based Cherry Mint Freeze and the vodka- and liqueur-based Sour Grapes.

Created by Kolby Petrus, Lone Star’s director of food & beverage, the poptails are an adult twist on a nostalgic childhood favorite. But they’re not just a fun cocktail option for grown-up guests.

The poptails are part of the hotel’s Poptail with a Purpose” initiative. A portion of all poptails sold benefit Partnerships for Children, a local non-profit that that offer resources, support and comfort for foster children and families in the community.
