I stopped by Mission Coffee Roasters after leaving the studio and wanted to grab a quick lo-cal drink to sip on my way to work. As soon as I walked in, I gave the baristas a mission – to make me something sugar-free. They gladly accepted and the result was delicious.
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.
