Padrecito cocktail – Padrecito

Padrecito cocktail - Padrecito
Blanco tequila, mezcal, lime, agave. $9
Padrecito, San Francisco CA

It’s unfortunate that this cocktail bears the name of the restaurant because it wasn’t very good. The cocktail was overly sour and had muddled flavors – not a fan…

Skinny margarita – Lulu California Bistro

Skinny margarita - Lulu California Bistro

1800 Silver tequila, agave nectar and fresh lime juice. $5.99
Lulu California Bistro, Palm Springs CA

Not quite sure what made this margarita “skinny”, but it tasted pretty good! Perhaps it’s because they didn’t use any sugary margarita mix. They serve it in a huge glass so I’m sure the large quantity negates any “skinny” promises.

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. I got a little scared going up this thing! I have a tiny fear of heights.

Project 365: Day 65

So I’ve recently returned from an 11-day trip to Puerto Rico/cruise to the southern Caribbean. I gladly didn’t have internet during the trip, but now I’m completely slammed with a huge backlog of posts that I need to complete. I also couldn’t post anything for Project 365 so this is what I’m gonna do from now on. I won’t be posting a pic from that particular day for my Project 365 posts, but I will continue to use these posts as journal/daily entries. I’ll try to catch up on all my posts, but please be patient.  🙂

7 spice margarita Hecho

7 spice margarita – Don Julio Blanco tequila, cucumber, agave, lime juice, togarashi spice. $12
Hecho, San Francisco

I loved this margarita! It was nice and spicy and so flavorful!

Hecho margarita

Hecho margarita – Partida Reposado tequila, fresh lime and agave nectar. $10
This margarita was a bit boring compared to the 7 spice margarita. There also wasn’t very much tequila so it lacked any kind of punch.

Water Hecho

Cute water glasses.

Chicken wings – Hog & Rocks

Chicken wings Hog & Rocks

Chile and agave nectar sauce, sprinkled with chives and served with carrots, celery, and ranch.  $5 happy hour
Hog & Rocks, San Francisco

Yet another amazing happy hour value at Hog & Rocks.!  I’m not suer that the chile and agave nectar sauce really stood out though.  It didn’t have a very defined flavor.  In fact, it tasted pretty light and mellow – if that’s possible with chicken wings.  You certainly get a lot of wings for five bucks, but in terms of flavor I don’t think I’ll be ordering these again (and they were cold!).
