If there’s one thing Southern California is known for, besides endless sunshine and beaches, it’s the incredible selection of Mexican food and with that comes an abundance of cocktails that will keep even the most discerning customers satisfied. However, this can make choosing the perfect place for a night out quite the chore. Where should you go when looking for that new and innovative drink that remains true to the roots of the local fare? The new Red O Taste of Mexico, located across from La Jolla’s Westfield UTC, has the solution. The Modelo Michelada gives customers that famous zing of a Mexican bloody mary with the addition of an ice cold beer. A michelada’s flavor reflects the true origin of its name, mi chela helada, which means “my cold beer.” Modelo Especial forms the foundation and is complimented by salt, lime, ice and a mixer of your choice, creating an unforgettable concoction. Garnish to your liking and find a new favorite!
Summertime in San Diego calls for Taco Tuesdays under the sun of America’s Finest City. Enjoy your ice cold Red O Modelo Michelada with tasty deals that happen on a foodie’s favorite day of the week.
