No, no, not oil. (BP thinks they've stanched the British Tea in the gulf but that's another story.) This is a shop window (Wiggy's on W. Sixth) showing some Texas liquors including one called Graham's Texas Tea, a tea vodka. Besides the Texas-shaped bottle we also see locally familiar names: Balcones and Dripping Springs. The Orange Liqueur is Paula's Texas Orange which is made by, yes, our friend Paula. It's been around quite a while and it is used in place of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec in Margaritas and in other mixed drinks that need an orange liqueur. So, yeah, you can drink local around here and not just beer.
