Looking for where to spend Thirsty Thursday this Cinco de Mayo? Red O Taste of Mexico at Fashion Island Newport Beach is the place to be! With amazing Mexican cocktails and great food specials, Red O has what you need to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Our personal favorite is the Modelo Michelada. If you have never tried this drink before, just imagine a Mexican bloody mary with an ice cold cerveza (beer). A michelada’s flavor reflects the true origin of its name, mi chela helada, means “my cold beer.” It’s a fun drink that starts with authentic Mexican beer—like Modelo Especial—mixed with salt, lime, ice, and a mixer of your choice. Heat things up with your favorite spices, add any garnish you can imagine, and enjoy!
This Cinco de Mayo at Red O Taste of Mexico, celebrate with live music and food and drink specials all night including $5 beer, $5 Modelo Micheladas, and $10 Cabo Wabo Margaritas. Live music will include classic rock in the bar and lounge, and a DJ featuring tropical beats in the outdoor pavilion. Also, enjoy complimentary Cabo Wabo shot girls and a Grand Marnier bar
Join the party at Red O Taste of Mexico this Cinco de Mayo; you won’t want to miss out on all the fun!
