Cantina's got some great original cocktails, perfect for the summer (Indian, in our case) time.
What you see here:
- a blackberry and Cabernet caipirinha made of Mae de Ouro cachaca, fresh OJ, lime, Driscoll Farm blackberries, crushed ice and Three Thieves Cabernet.
- a classic margarita of Arête tequila blanco, lime, limoncello and agave néctar.
- the pink thing? i can't remember; it was custom made by the proprietor himself, mixology master Duggan McDonnell, and all I can say was that it was deliciously refreshing.
Thumbs up as well on the five-spice margarita, pisco punch and pomegranate manhattan, the last composing of Woodford Reserve "Cantina barrel" bourbon, pomegranate molasses, cynar and Casablanca bitters. Lip-smackingly good.
