Too often, in too many restaurants, the margarita options are frozen or on the rocks. Hence the taste and effect are both watered down or frozen up into a thirst driven brain freeze.
Not so at Zapoteca on outer Fore Street in Portland, Maine. They are a Tequila bar attached with a Mexican restaurant. As such, the service is not obedient to a franchised formula.
Instead, they present their handcrafted drinks with simple understated elegance that highlights the taste sensations v the mass produced water downed gluttony. Zapoteca serves their taste sensations shaken, not stirred, watered down, or frozen. This specific margarita is a watermelon cube with a crushed habanero pepper slice. Sweet, spicy, tart & pure.
