Happy Hour of the Day
I've raved about the wonderful Caribbean cocktails at Ceiba a number of times over the last five years, and if you haven't stopped by the colorful downtown restaurant for a drink, you've got an extra good reason to do so tonight.
To celebrate Ceiba's fifth anniversary, the bar is offering complimentary snacks from 4 to 7 and pouring $5 mojitos and margaritas all night. Mojito and margarita specials may be old hat, but these are extraordinary versions of classic cocktails.
For the mojitos, Ceiba's staff uses a special press to crush sugar cane stalks and extract the raw, earthy, sugar-water called guarapo. The result isn't as sweet as most Americanized mojitos, but I think it's more refreshing.
The margaritas use Cuervo gold tequila and a house-made sour mix that lends a nice bite -- far better than you'll get at some overpriced, overcrowded Mexican restaurants.
