Can't Miss Meals

House Michelada from The Neighborhood

It’s no mistake that The Neighborhood wears the crown for the “Best Michelada in Town.” The sports bar, which serves 300-400 micheladas each week, makes their spin on this Tucson classic with hand-squeezed lime juice, Clamato, and an abundance of Mexican candies. 3940 E. 29th Street

Tucson Julep from BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar

Nothing says Tucson like the smell of creosote after a monsoon, and BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar gets that. Their aptly named Tucson Julep–made with serrano chili, local honey, Whiskey Del Bac mesquite-smoked Dorado, and creosote tincture–will conjure up a good dose of nostalgia and remind you why you love where you live. 7109 N. Oracle Road

Tucson Lemonade from Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails

Like the kind you had as a kid, but way better. Lemonade grows up with the addition of whiskey, lemon juice, sage syrup, and a hibiscus float. 135 S. Sixth Avenue

Waifs and Strays from Feast

Savory cocktail nerds, rejoice! Feast’s rye whiskey cocktail, featuring Grand Hop liqueur, is perfectly hoppy. Thanks to fresh oranges and lemons, this sophisticated cocktail is citrusy without tasting overly sweet. 3719 E. Speedway Boulevard

Seasonal Cocktails from Welcome Diner

Welcome Diner’s cocktail menu changes seasonally, but it’s always a wonderful reflection of the current weather conditions, local seasonal produce, and Welcome’s food offerings. If you’re looking for a drink that won’t disappear right after you fall in love with it, stick with their whiskey sour–it’s the absolute best. 902 E. Broadway Boulevard
