CROWDED STREET @ La Mexicana
La Mexicana’s mind-blowing assortment of margaritas often overshadows its nonalcoholic drinks, which is a darn shame. Despite its name, the Crowded Street mocktail doesn’t pack too many flavours or ingredients together. Orange and mango juices meet splashes of grenadine and Sprite to tropical effect. This cheery beverage wrought false nostalgia for that sun-kissed, fiesta-filled holiday in South America that never actually took place.
