Tahona Limon ($12)
"The reason we use Ilegal Joven is because it's not an incredibly smokey mezcal that would overpower the drink," said Flores. "It still has that smokey flavor to it, but it's also more agave forward, which makes the drink easier to balance."
Alice's Cooler ($11)
"This is a really refreshing and cooling drink that goes great with spicy food," said Flores. "Our hibiscus flower soda is a vinegar-based soda pop—like a shrub soda, which provides both sweet and sour flavors to the drink."
El Camino ($12)
"Even though this drink looks like it should be overly sweet, it's really balanced and floral," said Flores. "It's got a beautiful color from our prickly pear puree that we make from prickly pears, sugar, water, and lemon juice."
"We make our own hot sauce from 13 different types of chilis, and we call it our 'Bus Driver Sauce'," said Flores. "So we make an ice cube of about a 4-1 ratio of water to Bus Driver, and it helps to make a rye cocktail that goes great with Mexican food."
The Nacho ($12)
"The chili-lime shrub is made from a vinegar syrup with fresh limes and chili flakes. It creates a sweet and sour quality, and you get a little spice from the chili, and the Campari balances everything with its bitterness," said Flores.
