Rousseau’s talent and creativity knows no bounds as demonstrated by his recent win of Best Bartender at 2017 World Class Mexico competition.
Executive Chef, Eren Guryel teamed up with Rousseau to create a trio of tacos to pair up with one of his signature cocktails.
We start this inspired Apres experience with a taste of premium Mezcal while enjoying a fun DJ vibe as we waited for the drinks and tacos to arrive. I love the taste of Mezcal, something about it just appeals to my tastebuds.
Naked and Famous
This has mezcal, aperol, chartreuse, and lime juice.
This has mezcal, St Germain, dry curacao, and black lemon bitter.
This has mezcal, cynar, amaro averna, pineapple juice, amargo angostura bitter, lemon juice, lemongrass syrup, and smoked cinnamon. I got this drink and I liked how the pineapple juice balanced it all out.
The 3 tacos that come with the experience are:
Pollo Con Mole
Authentic mole braised chicken leg in a soft tortilla.
Tacos Dorados De Queso
Fried feta cheese taco with a green tomatillo sauce. I did enjoy this one, but it was due to the crunch texture.
Carne de Puerco Deshebrada
Pineapple pico de gallo, pickled red onion with a honey chipotle sauce.
As the snow stared falling on the day we were here, it was definitely an experience to have an apres party at SIDECUT. We got to try different types of tacos, a mezcal cocktail, and a tasting of mezcal. You won’t get full from this event, but since it’s between 3pm and 6pm, it’s like a midday snack and drink.
