Want to kickstart your summer? Then try a boozy poptail—a delicious adult twist on a fondly remembered childhood treat.

Brought to you by Austin’s retro-inspired hotel Lone Star Court, the poptails are fun and easy to make at home. Tip: They’re best enjoyed on a sunny patio or poolside. 

Bonus: The poptails are part of the hotel’s “Poptail with a Purpose” initiative. A portion of all poptails sold benefits Partnerships for Children, a nonprofit offering resources, support and comfort for foster children and families in the local community. 

And, if you’re ready to venture out, then the folks at Lone Star Court have detailed social distancing and cleaning protocols in place to keep you safe while you’re kicking up your heels and having fun at this boutique gem.
