Join us Friday, October 30th - Sunday, November 1st for our annual Day of the Dead celebrations. We're raising a glass to this celebration of life with two awesome new drink specials: the Marigold Margarita ($7) and the Margarita de los Muertos ($10).
Marigolds are prevalent during the Day of the Dead festivities; because of their vibrant color and scent, they are scattered about pathways, homes, and alters in hopes of guiding spirits home. We're paying tribute to this "flower of the dead" with our Marigold Margarita, made with a splash of orange juice, cinnamon, and rimmed with dried marigolds and black lava salt.
Our Margarita de los Muertos is based on a traditional Mexican drink called a Cantarito, served in a clay cup (that's yours to keep!) to help keep it ice cold. We are putting our own spin on this Jalisco cocktail by adding spices, fresh pumpkin and citrus, and a dash of plum bitters to Espolon blanco tequila to give it a rich flavor profile, and then topping it off with marigold petals.
Be sure to stop by your local Matador for these two unique specials and to celebrate the Day of the Dead.
