Bartaco's Smoke on the Water Isn't Just Blowing Smoke

Blow some smoke with Bartaco's Smoke on the Water.
Give us tacos, and we'll be happy. Give us tacos and an interesting margarita, and we're never leaving.

Bartaco, the Mexican restaurant with a Southern California vibe, is blowing some smoke with a new cocktail menu and happy hour that they've cleverly dubbed "High Tide." One of the cocktails, Smoke on the Water, quickly made our list of "Reasons to Take a Long Lunch." Smoky mezcal is paired with a bitter aperitivo and refreshing watermelon to make our favorite end-of-summer sipper.

Check out their happy hour 5-6:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Smoke on the Water ($10, $7.50 during HH): Banhez Mezcal, Cappelletti Aperitivo, watermelon, lemon, mint
