  • La Gloria has revealed a new "Puppyrita" for four-legged friends.

Dog beer, dog charcuterie and now doggy-ritas? San Antonio pups are living the high life this spring.

On Thursday, La Gloria — celebrity chef Johnny Hernandez's Mexican street-food concept — revealed a new canine-friendly thirst quencher on Instagram dubbed the Puppyrita.

The dog-friendly drink is made with chicken broth and ice, according to comments posted the restaurant. We're guessing lime isn't exactly a favorite flavor profile for pooches. Chamoy probably less so.

Puppyritas are available for $2, and 100% of the proceeds will go to The Cannoli Fund, an all-volunteer nonprofit that supports Southtown residents who care for rescued animals.

The doggie drinks are available at both La Gloria's Pearl and Dominion locations.
