Known for its loco list of more than 100 tequilas and creative margaritas, Añejo is no slouch when it comes to cocktails, including the Caesar – theirs features tequila blanco in place of vodka. As you’d expect, the Mexican restaurant brands its drink with a fiery flare, serving up the Caesar Diablo with habanero, lime and a pickled jalapeno.
There’s enough quaffage in this joint tequila mockingbird (boo, hiss). But seriously folks, Añejo stocks more than 200 tequilas, served by folks that can tell you a thing or two about the spirits. Located in the multi-level structure that once housed the legendary Fourth Street Rose, it’s a funky place for friendly banter at the bar and vibrant people watching – but not for quiet dining, unless you arrive between mealtimes. The tableside guacamole is amazing, and I can’t visit without ordering a chili coconut margarita. Or two.
Its classic-contemporary Mexican menu, Day of the Dead decor and atrium-style lounge have made Añejo a huge hit. The restaurant’s tequila list is a veritable bible of brands at 200-plus, a selection of which are available in well-priced tasting flights. The mescal selection is likewise impressive, clocking in at 36 labels. Perhaps unique to the city, here you’ll find Hacienda de Chihuahua sotol, an alcohol distilled from the yucca-like plant of the same name. Both tequila and mescal are squeezin’s of the agave plant.
