Chelas Mexican Grill Cocktails | Margarita
There are different levels of liquor licenses in California and Chelas Mexican Grill has a beer and wine only license. While this means you won’t find hard alcohol like tequila at Chelas Mexican Grill, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any creativity. Chelas Mexican Grill has created a special margarita, a Winerita! It is easy to see the connection between Mexican food and margaritas, they go hand in hand together. So in the spirit of that relationship, the Winerita at Chelas Mexican Grill will be made with wine, lime, and other fresh ingredients. There will even be an option to add slices of jalapeno to spice things up a bit.
Chelas Mexican Grill Cocktails | Red Sangria with Orange Wedges
Sangria is a classic cocktail made by simply adding fruit to wine. The mixture can be just about anything but making sure it tastes amazing with the meal is what is more important. At Chelas Mexican Grill, you will have a couple options with the sangria but when it comes to the red sangria, we paired it with orange slices. The orange brings a more acidic flavor to the sangria and makes it go nicely with just about any dish at Chelas Mexican Grill.
Chelas Mexican Grill Cocktails | Michelada
One of the many things we do here at Chelas Mexican Grill ensures that customers are heard, loud and clear. If changes need to be made, they’re made, the goal is to provide the best experience possible. The Michelada is a prime example of how we like to take care of our guests. About 4 years ago, Chelas Mexican Grill served up Micheladas for a limited time. While these cocktails were meant to be limited time offerings, everyone loved them. A Michelada is a beer cocktail that has Clamato mix, lime, and a few other ingredients. For comparison, think Bloody Mary but better. Of course, at Chelas Mexican Grill, we add our own fresh twist to the Michelada that makes it a perfect drink to go with just about any meal. In fact, a Chelas Michelada is so good, people will be coming in for the drink and staying for the food.
Chelas Mexican Grill Cocktails | White Sangria with Strawberries
