OVERALL CONCLUSION: it’s a YES for great Mexican Cocktails & Date night out Atmosphere .
You are not cheated in the atmosphere arena, Mexican sugar has a comfortable upscale vibe providing a good crowd that will surround you with laughs and background chatter. Many choices for what type of night you want to have- sitting at the lively bar, long group tables, romantic tables for 2, circular booths, and even cozy nooks with a combination of upholstered chairs and leather couch like benches. We sat at a quaint romantic table for 2, appropriately dim lit making it really interesting to capture any good food photos for you. The Wolf was in full IG mode holding up the candle on the table to attempt to help get any decent snapshots. The Waitress was attentive and quick to confirm if we had ever visited their restaurant or not then go over specials and menu favorites. .
We started the evening with some of the recommended cocktails- Wolf got the Jalisco Old Fashioned and I ordered the Machete- we decided to switch drinks. The Machete was a exquisite combination serrano infused Blanco tequila, watermelon, cucumber, agave, lime & mint, the salt on the rim was the ideal final touch. As soon as he took a sip, it brought him back to Picos y Fruta, a nostalgic favorite from south texas which consisted of a cup of fruit salted with chili powder, and served with a skewer to eat….his favorite was always watermelon. I was a fan of their version of the old fashioned which had Dambhar añejo tequila, ancho reyes, angostura & orange bitters, agave- the smell alone was enticing, complex and tasteful. Aperitif seduction at its finest. .
