Without tequila among our bottles, you might be inclined to think that 12 Bottle Bar would sit out Cinco de Mayo. In fact, when we’ve asked the experts, a few of them have suggested that we replace one of our bottles with one from south of the border. While we certainly love tequila (in particular, great mezcals), we hold to the belief that its use in classic cocktails is limited. Besides, if you’re craving a taste of Mexico, there are so many other beverages to explore – like agua de tamarindo.
