Best Tasting Hostess: Antoinette at Twin Liquors

Best Tasting Hostess: Antoinette at Twin Liquors

Antoinette could be your mother, your grandmother, your auntie, or your sister, and like all great ladies, she's known by first name only. The Twin Liquors hostess has been helping customers get the very best out of their liquor for decades. Her commitment to social justice is inspiring: When no one would sell to the gay clubs in Austin in the 1970s, Antoinette and the gang at Twin Liquors did. Arrive at the tasting stand at Twin Liquors, and you'll be greeted with her radiant smile and a laugh, and she'll tell you what's good. She knows good. Everything she's served to us has been perfect, and the conversation is delightful without fail. After five minutes you'll wish she was related to you so you'd have more reason (than being a borderline alcoholic) to see her.
