Happy almost weekend, friends! This lucky girl has tomorrow off of work and is San Francisco bound for a reunion with two of my best friends, and I could not be more excited.

In other news, I met a new journalism friend Melissa at Zocalo's last night for National Margarita Day. As an avid tequila drinker (yes, my drink of choice is a tequila sunrise, please don't judge) I was not about to pass up the opportunity to celebrate. And to make it even better, Ole Restaurant Group was running a promotion -- any margarita purchase yesterday came with a free order of guac. Yum.
Usually, I like my margaritas blended, but the Hibiscus margarita that I ordered, made on the rocks with Espolon Silver tequila, Hibiscus syrup, and lime juice, decorated with a delicious cinnamon sugar rim, was incredible. Not too strong that all I could taste was tequila, but powerful enough that I left the restaurant with a perfect buzz. I've found that's a rare combination, and I truly appreciate bartenders who can find that happy medium. It came with a hefty $11 price tag, but once in a while, I think splurging on a to-die-for drink is okay.
Our salsa & guac were delish and the ambiance at the bar was great. Overall, a perfect after work drink spot that I highly recommend! I've also been here for dinner, and though the entrees are pricey, the guac is made fresh to order which is difficult, if not impossible, to resist. I especially love this restaurant in the summer, when the patio is open and you can drink your margaritas in the fresh air. I know it's going to be in the 50s again today, but I think that just makes me yearn for May that much more.
