It's a good general rule to be cautious of drinking anything named after a movie centered on the delivery of severe physical trauma. Yet the art of the tequila mixer, which can often make you feel like you've been clocked in the skull by a Bruce Lee nunchaku, is done no better justice than at Barrio. Enter the Dragon is the name for one of Barrio's subtler yet kickier concoctions, a margarita that balances the sweet tang of passion fruit with a brisk jolt of pepper, creating a blend that sharply complements the backbone of Cava that gives the drink its delightfully head-swimming properties. Even in Barrio's outstanding margarita menu (also home to the absinthe-tinged Cobra Verde and the citrus pile-driver Macho Camacho), Enter the Dragon stands out as a concoction that has as much kick in its flavor as it does in its buzz. It'll get you tipsy, but you won't even notice—you'll be too busy enjoying the taste.
