Drink of the week: The Hibiscus Margarita
Bar Abilene 1300 Lagoon Ave., Minneapolis 612-825-2525 $8.95
Yes, it is true Rachel-- we do all have a sad tequila story-- http://www.citypages.com/2008-11-12/restaurants/barrio-treats-tequila-with-wine-style-reverence/--groping, lampshades, assless chaps…you know you don’t have to drink all the tequila.
Bar Abilene will make you forget any issues you ever had with old Jose. The choices on their drink menu range from ye-ole basic, to mango-chili and everything in-betwixt. My fave is The Hibiscus Margarita made with hibiscus flower tea, fresh citrus juice and topped with a floating orchid. Try one of their yummy creations during their rocking happy hour—Monday thru Thursday, from 4-6--everything, yes everything, is half-price. Yeah, and maybe someday I will tell you my tequila story.
