Margarita de Diabolita

It doesn't get much better than enjoying great food with even better friends. During the week, I got together with two of my best girl friends for an evening out at Masa in downtown Minneapolis, MN. Masa is a new restaurant specializing in modern mexican cuisine, and has been getting a lot of buzz lately.  The atmosphere was fun and trendy, and my chicken with mole entree was delicious. However, the highlight of my evening (besides the company) was the Margarita de Diabolita (pictured above).

This 'rita is made with habanero-infused Sauza Silver Tequila, Licor 43, ginger, fresh lime, blood orange juice, and pomegranate juice. The habanero tequila gives this drink a strong, spicy back-bone, countered by the sweetness of the pomegranate juice. It was interesting and absolutely delicious. A perfect complement to the mexican cuisine. I also loved the presentation of the drink. Did you notice the lime devil horns and the straw tail?

I also loved the presentation of the chips and salsa starter given to every table. The chips are served plain, and you are given lime wedges and sea salt to season the chips yourself. What a fun way to dress up a simple starter, and a cute idea for dinner parties.

Cheers to great food enjoyed in the company of great friends!
