In the peak of the hot Las Vegas summer, Hussongs Cantina, located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, announces the launch of a brand new hand-shaken specialty margarita menu.
The list of intricately designed drinks includes ten unique takes on the staple libation, which as legend has it, originated at the landmark original Hussong’s in Ensenada, Mexico.
The array of debuting margaritas includes everything from exotic fruit flavors to peanut butter to cotton candy. Highlights include the Carnaval de Rio Rita, which boasts the perfect blend of passion fruit and pineapple, made with Diosa Mango tequila, Tanteo Tropical tequila and Almeca Blanco tequila with a splash of fresh lime juice and the Mangonero, made with muddled habanero, fresh mango chunks, lime juice and Jose Cuervo Tradicional tequila.
Creations like the Cotton Candy Rita, made tableside as Hussong’s Original Margarita is poured over a heaping glass of cotton candy, and the PB&J, featuring Sauza Reposado tequila with crème de cassis, muddled blackberries, a peanut butter rim and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, offer distinct and noteworthy spins. Exotic fruit flavors are explored in the Tamarindo Lindo, with tamarind, orange and Hussong’s Resposado tequila, and the Li Hing Mui as the traditional plum powder is mixed with Mango Aloe Vera juice, lime juice and Almeca Blanco tequila.
The refreshing and fun drink additions join the restaurant’s buoyant and casual atmosphere and delectable Baja-inspired menu.
