Ay Dios Mio! Mercadito remembers its first anniversary this summer time with new, special edition menu products specifically created for the happy occasion. Beginning on Friday, July 24 or National Tequila Day, Mercadito will introduce a brand new taco and new cocktail to celebrate one year of getting their signature “sex-mex” tastes to the folks of Vegas. Fans from the Mexican hot-spot have to celebrate fast, the anniversary party only lasts through August. 31.
Produced by Executive Chef Juan Puentes, a scrumptious new taco makes its way to the Mercadito menu for that celebration. The Surf & Turf taco (rib-eye, tempura lemon shrimp, asparagus/cauliflower chipotle hash) combines two of the most popular Mercadito tacos with a fresh, summer time spin. Visitors can also enjoy with their favorite libation or pair using the anniversary cocktail, the Old Fashioned Mercadito (muddled orange, filthy cherries, angostura bitters and Mercadito?s Herradura Double Barrel Reposado Tequila). Created by Hayes Swope, general manager at Mercadito Las Vegas, the Old Fashioned Mercadito consists of a tequila specifically produced for Mercadito – a dual barrel Reposado from Herradura aged in 2 different oak barrels, 10 months in bourbon barrels and one month inside a new oak barrel. Visitors can savor the Surf & Turf tacos for $4 per taco and also the Old Fashioned Mercadito for $10 or mix the anniversary tastes for $16 for that cocktail and 2 tacos.
