Midtown restaurant Escorpion’s La Tradicional (traditional margarita) is already somewhat of a bargain at $6, but factor in the Scoutmob discount and you’ve really got yourself a cocktail on the cheap. You’re basically getting the La Tradicional for three bucks. (You of course have to factor in your Scoutmob max discount) Escorpion’s La Tradicional is made using Jimador Blanco tequila, Triple Sec, and lime and is served on the rocks. Since Escorpion is also a Mexican tequila bar the restaurant features an extensive cocktail menu designed by head mixologist Gilbert Marquez.
I’ve had the opportunity to check out Escorpion once, but unfortunately I didn’t sample any of their drinks. But I can say that their queso and shrimp tacos are pretty tasty if you’re looking for an edible companion to your cocktail. I did glance at their drink menu and the cool thing about their menu is that there’s actually a rating system which shows you how strong each drink is. So whether you’re looking for something potent or something on the lighter side their rating system helps you find that ideal cocktail.
