If you’ve been conscious (and connected to the Internet) for the last year or so, you’re well aware of the food-fusion trend, where two seemingly disparate confections, dishes, etc., become one. “Franken-pastry,” so to speak. (The Cronut—croissant and donut hybrid—is probably the best-known example, but you can find other notable ones here.)
But what about drinks?
We all know and love Sangria, that faithful mixture of wine, juice, chopped fruit, and brandy. Margaritas, too, in all of their tequila-infused, salt-rimmed glory. But what happens when you mix the two?
Enter the Sangarita.
It’s sort of like Sangria with tequila, instead of the usual brandy, plus a rim of salt. You’ll probably find that the recipe varies from place to place, but it’s usually offered frozen or on the rocks, like a Margarita, and chock-full of chopped fruit, like Sangria.
Turns out Mexican restaurants all over the county have been quietly serving this for, well, we’re not sure how long. Here are seven places in Westchester where you can find it.
