Isla can bring paradise to our glass anytime, no matter the season. Bar Manager Shane Paule visited us and made one of their signature cocktails. It’s called La Nina, and it’s made by combining strawberry infused rum, lime juice and simple syrup in a shaker. Top it off with ginger beer and a float of blackstrap rum (made from molasses). They make their strawberry infused rum by combining 3 qts of strawberries and 2 bottles of rum for 3 days, then straining it and adding an additional 3 qts of strawberries for 3 additional days. Isla is located on west 4th street.Go to islaaustin.com for more information
