I'm still a little slow after an awesome night out at Paladar celebrating Polo's birthday - Happy Birthday Polo! It was filled with great company, fantastic cocktails and plain ol' good times!
Although birthday boy was definitely the center of attention, I have to admit that the highlight of my night was discovering the awesomeness of the culprit that today has me slightly twisted. Appropriately named "Vampiro" this sucker (pun intended) bit me back each time I took a sip and I LIKED IT!
Vampiro is made up of margarita with hibiscus flower nectar served straight up with a spicy, salted rim.
You can try your luck at creating one on your own or go directly to Paladar for the real thing. By the way, aside from their awesome cocktail menu, Paladar also boast delicious cuisines by celebrity chef, Aaron Sanchez, former co-host of the Food the Food Networks' "Melting Pot". Cheers!
