Just Add Free Tequila: An Even Better Cinco de Mayo With Hooch
With Cinco de Drinko right around the corner (aka May 5th), it’s time to start thinking about where you’ll be sporting your poncho and downing Tequila. I mean sure there are a million establishments around town where you can get the fiesta started, but why would you want just any old place. Let’s take a look at some of the best spots around town, and of course, the delicious festive beverages you’ll be sippin’ on.
Los Feliz – 109 Ludlow Street
Since this means the “happy ones” in Espanol, you know it’s probably a good choice to get your party started here. With drinks like the Spicy Cilantro (Jalapeno & Habanero infused Jimador Blanco, Fresh lime juice and cilantro, and a drop of Raw Organic Agave) or the Hibiscus (Milagro Silver, Hibiscus Reduction, Fresh Lime Juice and some Raw Organic Agave), who can say no to this fiesta?
Kobrick Coffee Co. – 24 9th Avenue
New to the meatpacking district, this seemingly quiet coffee house offers a little more than just your average Americano. This Tequila Thursday, I mean Cinco de Mayo, take your inner Mexican to Kobrick for a Mexican Jumping Bean. This crafty cocktail includes Reposado Tequila, Tiger Strip Ristretto Shot, Amer China China and a hint of Agave Nectar, for the perfect drink to get your night off to a great start.
El Original Tex Mex – 735 10th Avenue
Of course, if you want that authentic Tex Mex experience, because, let’s face it, Cinco de Mayo isn’t a real Mexican holiday, head on over to El Original Tx Mx. For a bold, bad-ass Margarita, ask the bartender to serve you the Poblanita – a mix of Excellia Tequila, Fresh Lime Juice, Jarriots Grapefruit Soda, Chile and a Cumin Salt Rim. Yes, please!
Bo’s Kitchen and Bar Room – 6 West 24th Street
As you keep the tequila flowing, you should make a stop at Bo’s for a badass beverage. This tasty tequila drink is where top-shelf liquor meets smoky chipotle and fresh cucumber for a boldly refreshing cocktail with a nuanced balance. You might say Bo’s knows better when you’re introduced this creative spin on the classic Margarita.
