1. Classic Cheeseburgers & Wicket Sour: A Date Made in BBQ Heaven

Burger Vibes: Picture it, that iconic sizzle, tantalizing aroma, and the first juicy bite of a perfectly grilled cheeseburger. 

Perfect Match: Wicket Sour. That zesty lemon punch cuts through the meat’s richness, and the Candian Wicket is bold enough to stand its ground.

2. Shrimp Skewers & Agave Margarita: A Tropical Getaway on a Plate

Shrimp Tales: Those tender morsels, kissed by flames and marinated in zesty goodness.

Sip Solution: A Classic Agave Margarita. Salty, citrusy, and just the right amount of flair to take you straight to the beach. Perfect with either El Guitarron or Tequesta Agave wine

3. Rib-tastic BBQ Ribs & Smokey Old Fashioned

Rib Revelry: Slow-cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection with that finger-licking BBQ glaze.

The Liquid Smoke: A Smokey Old Fashioned, made with Zapotec Espadin Agave, It’s like your drink and ribs had a secret smokey handshake. It’s a take on a classic recipe but made with our new Zapotec Espadin Agave Wine

4. Veggie Galore & Basil Gimlet: Green with Envy

Veggie Vision: Grilled veggies, glistening and charred to perfection. Who said vegetables were boring?

The Green Dream: Basil Gimlet made with Martin and Collins. Fresh, aromatic, and clear as day – this one’s for the veggie lovers. 

5. Wingin’ It: Grilled Chicken Wings & Santos Michelada’s

Wing Woah: Spicy, smoky wings begging to be devoured.

Cool Down Cure: Santos Micheladas. It’s spicy, it’s cool, it’s beer with a twist! Ready for round two of wings? Use your favorite Mexican style lager with Santos Michelada mix

6. Fruit-tastic Skewers & Santos White Sangria: Dessert Dazzle

Fruit Flare: Imagine fruit jewels, caramelized to perfection, bursting with flavor.

The Sweet Whisper: White Santos Sangria. It’s like your fruit skewers whispered their secrets to your drink. Splash up your life with Santos White Sangria and fresh fruit for a refreshing labor day cocktail. 

7. Sizzle & Spice: Grilled Sausages & Dark & Stormy

Sausage Saga: Every bite is a flavor explosion, from spicy to herby.

The Storm Chaser: Rhumbero Sailor. With each sip, ride the wave of flavor – a little spice, a little sweet, a lot of awesome. A dark ‘n’ stormy is a cocktail made with Rhumbero Spice and ginger beer served over ice and garnished with a slice of lime. We substituted dark rum for our Rhumbero Spice (Wine-based spice rum). 

With the right blend of food, cocktails, and atmosphere, you’ll ensure patrons remember this day, and more importantly, keep coming back for more. Cheers to a wonderful Labor Day celebration!
