Tiny Boxwoods may be best known for its famous chocolate chip cookies, but this River Oaks eatery hasn’t exactly been on the radar as a place to grab a stiff drink. That will soon change, as Tiny Boxwoods has officially acquired its mixed beverage license. And that, of course, means only one thing: cocktails.
In addition to Tiny’s selection of wines, new Tiny Boxwoods beverage director Danny Frouenfelker will introduce a menu of craft cocktails next month. The menu will focus on classic drinks – think Old Fashioneds and Moscow Mules – mixed with syrups, tinctures, and other ingredients made from scratch in house.
Earlier this month, Tiny Boxwoods hired Danny Frounfelkner as beverage director. Frounfelkner grew up in Napa Valley, and has since served as beverage director at Royal Oaks Country Club and a wine and spirits educator at Goody Goody Liquor Stores. "[Frounfelkner] was looking to find a restaurant that shares his philosophies on training and culture and we are excited to be that place he can now call home," Tiny Boxwoods business director Sarah Martinez tells Eater. "This is an extremely exciting step for Tiny’s and we can’t wait to welcome Danny on board."
The new cocktail menu will launch at Tiny Boxwoods and on April 15, and will also be part of the restaurant’s forthcoming outpost in Austin.
