TRUDY’S MEXICAN MARTINI
Trudy’s is famous for its Tex-Mex food but they are also well known for their Mexican Martinis. Who can say no to a martini? Consisting of tequila, Cointreau, Sprite, OJ, and lime juice, these are served in a giant shaker and they are strong as hell! Every Monday, they are only $5. Limit two.
DRAFT PICK’S PURPLE PEOPLE EATER
This insane cocktail is made with 151, vodka, blue Curaçao, and almond liqueur. 151?! Who do they think we are? That’s a real life altering cocktail. And it’s called the Purple People Eater so do we really need to say more? It says to limit two but we honestly can’t handle one!
ISLA’S DRAFT ZOMBIE
Isla is bringing its A-game with a fantastic food menu, and a bevy of tropical libations. Their Draft Zombie is a blend of Jamaican rum, Demerara 5 Year rum, 151, house-made cinnamon syrup, house-made falernum, lime, absinthe, and angostura bitters. We can feel the island breeze blowing our hair in the wind already. Limit two.
THE JACKALOPE’S HELLDORADO
The Helldorado is in a league of its own. You are required that at least two people share this insane beverage. It’s a vodka-based cocktail served in a HUGE martini glass complete with neon straws. Who doesn’t love the opportunity to share a delicious cocktail?
