Hailing from Shady’s Burger House & Brewhaha, the Grape ’75 is a play off the traditional French 75 cocktail. Made with Sobieski vodka, fresh lemon and sparkling wine, the Grape ’75 is combined with muddled grapes and Shady’s simple syrup. Served shaken and stirred.

This Mexican classic is served as traditionally as possible at Resident Taqueria, with the exception of a clay jar. The drink is made with muddled lemons, limes and oranges, Casa Amigos Blanco tequila, and topped off with Squirt. The garnishes, a chili-powder rim and tamarind straw, make it a spicy, fruity combination.
