It’s Friday and my mouth is watering for a good night out this weekend. As I fell asleep last night, visions of Coronaritas were dancing in my head. What’s a Coroninarita you ask? It’s the drink that’s still haunting me from last weekend (but in a good way!). It’s the drink that’s like a song you can’t get out of your head. It’s the drink that lets you pretend you’re on vacation, so in a way it’s like a good book that takes your mind away on an adventure. With the mood it sets, one might envision themselves as a young spring breaker at a beach bar. It’s the drink they’re serving up just down the street on Ventura Blvd at my local bar, The Spitting Chicken Cantina.
Just as the name suggests, it’s the fusion of a Corona and a margarita. As you drink the margarita, more Corona slowly comes out. AND….it’s MASSIVE! They give you two straws to suggest sharing it with a friend, much like the infamous couple slurping spaghetti from the same plate. You do get a little fooled by the appearance and the feeling you get just by looking at it, because I have to admit, the taste is a little weird. For some reason, your behavior gets a little weird too by the time you reach the bottom…Hmm… Bring it on!
