View as Map

If that matrix of cocktails above already has your mouth watering, prepare for yet more boozy offerings after the jump, wherein Eater Austin maps out Eater Cocktail Week 2012's special drinks de la semaine. We asked some of the city's best mixologists to prepare unique offerings, limited-time previews or otherwise rare cocktails from today through Friday (unless otherwise noted) so that Eater readers could get a taste of Austin's thriving cocktail scene.

Stops on the cocktail tour (well, after all these drinks, it might be more of a slow crawl) include: The Volstead Lounge, Bar Congress, Contigo, Drink.Well and many more.
