I’m a little embarrassed to say I drive by Nuestra Cocina all the time. It took me until a few months ago to check this place out. And now I’m hooked!
I get off work at 4:15 and by the time I get over there the doors are swinging open at 5pm and the bar stool is calling my name!
The bartenders, Danny and Ernie, are darling. As we sat at the bar nibbling on chips and 3 different salsas, Ernie gave us tiny tastes of several different drinks he served up while we watched.
The Cocina Especial has become my staple. A nice spicy margarita which I get just a little hotter than usual. The girls have ventured through a few more beverages on the menu, such as the Scarlet Orange Margarita, the Serrano Lime Drop, and the Margarita De la Casa, all of which are outstanding.
I’ve learned through life’s hiccups there are certain things that can cure anything. One is ice cream. Breyer’s Vanilla Fudge Twirl. The other is a fabulous Margarita. Throw a bit of arbol simple syrup in there and the world is just about perfect.
ahhhhh… the weekend is almost here
