Golden Mojito

Introducing the Golden Mojito. It’s a dazzling twist on the beloved minty refreshment that adds a touch of luxury and a dash of intrigue to every sip. The next time you’re in the mood for a mojito, consider embracing the allure of the Golden Mojito. Cheers to raising the bar and sipping in style!

Mexican Bulldog

Okay, so technically, this is still a margarita but with a twist! The Mexican Bulldog is a fiesta in a glass that combines the zesty punch of a margarita with the easygoing appeal of a cerveza (beer). Yup, you heard that right. A margarita AND a beer. It’s our classic margarita with an upended beer in the glass. As you drink, the beer flows in and mixes with the margarita, creating a delightful concoction that’s as visually appealing as it is delicious. Here’s to the perfect blend of flavors and the unbeatable spirit of a Mexican fiesta! ¡Salud!

Housemade Sangria

Our housemade sangria is another cocktail favorite. Sangria is a popular and refreshing alcoholic beverage that originates from Spain. Its history dates back several centuries, and it has evolved to become a well-known and beloved drink in Spain and worldwide. In our version, we blend Camina Tempranillo red wine or Camina Verdejo white wine with citrus, fresh fruit juices, and even herbs are used to create this unique flavor. The perfect way to get in your daily dose of fruits!
