I recently was invited back to Bartaco 12 South to taste the new Bartaco Secret menu item. Every month or so, Bartaco selects a brand new secret item to offer to patrons who ask for their bartaco secret. This is my third Bartaco Secret experience, the first one featured an ahi tuna taco wrapped in lettuce, and the second one featured a braised short rib taco. This third visit was different because the featured item wasn’t a special taco, but a cocktail. As you can imagine, I was very interested in checking it out.
So, I introduce to you the current Bartaco Secret: The Chai Mezcalita.
The Chai Mezcalita contains the following:
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3/4 oz. Chai Syrup
- 1 1/4 oz. Banhez Mezcal
- 3/4 oz. Libelula
- Star anise to garnish
No trip to Bartaco is complete without a variety of tacos. My favorite ones to date are the sesame ribeye, the falafel, the pork belly, and the spicy chorizo. I was also a raving fan of the last Bartaco Secret item, the braised short rib taco. I also have to get the guacamole every single time because it’s the best. Check out their full menu here.
