Feel refreshed with all your #Austin360Drinks beverages

Even though Austinites are finally experiencing the burn of a 100-degree day — and so late into the summer, too — we’re staying cool by drinking up, sipping on everything from cold-brew coffee to beer to margaritas, and we’re also, of course, documenting each one on Instagram.

The Statesman’s social media campaign #Austin360Drinks has been asking readers to tag their photos with that hashtag for the past few months now. A Storify has been rounding them all up. And starting today, some of those tagged photos will also be featured here on the blog in a bi-monthly post that just might give you some ideas about what to drink next, alcoholic or not.

Summers in Austin always mean one tropical tradition returns in local bars: Tiki Tuesdays. At No Va on Rainey Street (@novaonrainey), that means the Mitsubishi Flyby, made with dark rum and other island ingredients, is on special.

The Infinite Monkey Theorem is a Colorado-based winery gearing up to open an Austin location off South Congress very soon, but in the meantime, Amy Drohen (@sushigirl_atx) recommends looking for their bottles and cans of wine (and this new dry-hopped pear cider) in local bars and stores.

Friday mornings with @nespressousa and my lovely gold rimmed @west_elm_austin mug. I love sprinkling cinnamon in my coffee, how do you like yours?

Getting through the work week can be tough, but it’s just a little easier to swallow when you have the right cup of coffee. For Ane Urquiola Lowe (@thehungrychronicles), that perfect cup comes with cinnamon sprinkled on top.

The Lamplight at @thetownsendaustin is a great way to get the afternoon going #cocktails #austin360drinks

One of Austin’s newest bars, the Townsend, hasn’t been opened for very long, but Matt McGinnis (@mcginnisatx) can already recommend the Lamplight, with bourbon, Drambuie, lemon and Chinese 5-spice.

Hops & Grain’s old small-batch Greenhouse series of beers is now the Dispensary series, and it focuses more on hop-forward styles like this Double IPA that Chris Sheppard (@crafttaste) tried in the taproom.
