9/16/21 – Happy Mexican Independence! In coming up with this year’s celebratory cocktail, we challenged our mixology team with a specific set of rules: 1) The drink must display all three colors of the Mexican flag, and 2) It must include at least one ingredient commonly grown in Morelos.
Wow, did this one not disappoint. A beautiful mix of coconut, cinnamon and ripe avocado (grown widely in Morelos). It’s an absolute must try.
The name of the drink “Cry of Dolores” is an ode to the call of arms given by Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in Dolores, Mexico on 16 September 1810 while ringing the church bell and essentially triggered the Mexican War of Independence.
