Our Favorite Cinco de Mayo Drinks

This week brings us to Kite String Cantina, a local Roscoe Village bar and restaurant in Chicago with one goal: to give patrons a little taste of comfort and transcendence through great beer, bubbler cocktails, and gourmet taquitos. They know their customers love margaritas, so they’ve started to batch large quantities of their unique margarita in their bubbler system.

“We use Twisted Alchemy lime in our draft margarita and it then gets kegged and runs through a nitro draft line, so it has a little effervescence. We were curious to see how this juice would react with that and it’s awesome. It’s a really great drink.” Says Ashten Lind, of Kite String Cantina.

Margaritas are always a must at Cinco de Mayo parties, but here’s a Cinco de Mayo drink with a twist. The Kite String Cantina crowd favorite cocktail: The Smoky Soda.
