We're going all "American Hustle" on you this time. You know us and cocktails, making and of course drinking them just comes as second nature to us. We could do it in our sleep (maybe) we've never tried but challenge accepted! The annual San Antonio Current Cocktail party is coming up, and it's 70's theme! Its pretty perfect for us because we love men in white suits i.e John Travolta. So, keeping with the theme we decided to take the popular drinks of the 1970's and add a little Dossier flavor to them. First up, the Tom Collins, which is just perfectly fine, but we needed to get more "groovy" with it. Insert the raspberry and thyme. It's a great drink with lots of great flavor, the raspberry and thyme simple syrup takes this drink to a whole other level. Not to mention it's such a pretty color. Mix some of these up, put your bell bottoms on and get your boogy shoes ready!
As a gift to our San Antonio readers the SA Current has so kindly given us some tickets to give away to some lucky winners! This event is a must go to. Its all 70's themed so make sure to dress up in your best bell bottoms! Plus there is going to be 15 bars with all their cocktails (for free) and 13 restaurants with some free hors d'oeuvres all for you to try. Its gonna be a blast! We went last year and had the best time. Did we mention this event is SOLD OUT!

We were so lucky to have been invited to check out Urban Taco, which in our opinion is one of the top mexican restaurants in San Antonio. The atmosphere couldn't have been better, and the food is to die for. For starters you HAVE to try the avocado ceviche tower. It didn't last long, we couldn't get enough. We would totally recommend the quesadillas because well, their delicious. Trust us! Of course we couldn't go to a place with "taco" in the name and not order some tacos! They certainly live up to their name. The tacos were so flavorful. Great taste and great presentation. You know us, we cant go to a restaurant and not order some cocktails. Needless to say, we left there happy. The drinks we tried were spot on, strong but not to strong. Just the right amount of delicious. If your feeling dangerous definitely order the mezcal. Their margaritas were killer, in a good way, and they have a great happy hour! We give Urban Taco 5 out of 5 tacos! Get there this weekend we promise you wont regret it. Enjoy!
