hora feliz

Today we spent happy hour at Cascabel a new restaurant in Santa Rosa. This place has so much Tequila it’s crazy! I am not a tequila drinker or I probability would not have been able to choose a cocktail. For me today was all about the Red Sangria. It’s made with red wine, Sandman Ruby Port, citrus fruits and simple syrup. The drink was well balanced, not too sweet. It had a nice spicy note from the port. A very yummy, refreshing drink.

For our Happy Hour treat we ordered Guacamole and Chicken Taquitos. The guacamole was not to spicy with good acid balance. I wish it was a bit creamer, but thats just me. The taquitos were made with shredded chicken and served with a lovely fire roasted tomato salsa and crema and fresh quaso crumbles. I liked these very much. The fire roasted salsa stole the show.

We also had chips and salsa. It came with 3 different sauces, all of them good.


A non-burger

In our neighbor hood the hang out spot is Carmen’s Bruger Bar. The restaurant makes a great burger, salads, and mexican food.

We stop in frequently for a quick bite and a beer. Today I ordered the Spicy Chicken Burrito. The plating is so colorful. I love the tri-colored corn chips! The blue ones are the best! The burrito was a great size, I took half of it home. The chicken was shredded and the spiced just right to not over power any ingredients. I really love cheese and this burrito had a good amount. The order came with sour cream, pico-de-gallo, and guacamole. The guacamole was very tasty and the amount was generous. The spicy finish was well balanced, so yummy, it made my upper lip sweat a bit. Burrito yumminess!!
