North Padre Islander's version of an Austin classic!
The weekend is here and we can't wait for happy hour! This drink recipe is inspired by Trudy's in Austin and is also sometimes called a "Dirty Margarita." We know that those of you who've had a chance to enjoy this delicious concoction understand why we wanted to recreate a version to enjoy at home. It took a little trial & error.. and a LOT of taste testing, but we think we hammered it! Or do we mean nailed it? Either way..
We hope you LOVE IT, let us know what you think! Salut!

Beach Country Resort
Construction at the new Schlitterbahn Beach Country North Padre Island Resort and Water Park is well underway with a tentative opening date marked in Summer 2014.
This TEXAS sized 65-acre water park is located within a full service resort complete with lodging, golf, tennis restaurants, event facilities and more. It sounds like it will be just as fun for adults as it is for kids!
Slides, pools, rides, a surf rider machine and swim up bar are all in the plan. The park is also set up to be a "lineless" with a lazy river transportation system allowing park guests to float from one ride to another without leaving the comfort of their inner tube.
A proposed master plan to the surrounding area also includes a marina in Lake Padre and a Beach Walk / Island Village with retail shops, restaurants, entertainment options, hotels, condos and more. The entire project should take around 15-20 years to complete.
"North Padre is raw, unencumbered Texas coast—a dramatic contrast to the spring break chaos of South Padre. Near the island's north end, Malaquite Beach is rarely crowded. The visitor center has displays on local history and wildlife. Work up a sweat windsurfing, kayaking, or walking any of the 60 miles of uninterrupted sand down to Mansfield Channel."
