When it comes to anything chai, I don’t mess around. Almost every coffee shop offers chai in a variety of forms but he perfect cup is spicy enough that your throat tingles for a few seconds afterward, but still calm enough that you want to drink a second. Jives Coffee Lounge is my favorite spot to grab a tea and cozy up for a few hours.
The weather in Colorado Springs this fall has been exceptionally warm but the time for patio happy hours without a parka and gloves is coming to an end. It seemed to be one of the final warm days of the season, so mom and I decided to hit Crystal Park Cantina in Manitou Springs for one last outdoor drink.
I went to the Colorado Springs Young Professionals meetup at The Principal’s Office and decided to try something different. The Blackberry Smash was delicious. Made with freshly smashed blackberries, lime, bourbon, mint and something sparkling to give it some bubbles, for something sweeter than I’d normally get, I’d order it again.
The margaritas at Sonterra Grill’s happy hour are some of the best in Colorado Springs. Sonterra doesn’t just have great drinks, but the discounted food and tapas offered during their happy hour really make it worth the sit at the bar. Plus, their happy hour goes later than most other restaurants in the Springs.
