For Cocktail Hour 

Every great host knows guests are often searching for a refreshing beverage the moment they arrive. While preparing to gather with this All-Mexican menu, we encourage you to gather a few essentials for preparing a set bar where guests can help themselves to a few delicious drinks. A few cocktails that we love to feature at our gatherings include a Classic Margarita and a Perfect Paloma. Each cocktail brings a punch of citrus and refreshing taste that simply pairs best with this delicious menu.  

Don’t forget to include one (or more) bowls of salsa, queso, and guacamole for guests to snack on before the main course is ready... just make sure to have LOTS of tortilla chips at the ready. 


For the Main Course 

Arguably the most highly anticipated course, the main course is an important component to any dinner gathering and thankfully we have a few ideas in mind for this festively themed menu. Our All-Mexican menu features tacos as the main course – always a crowd-pleaser. Whether you prefer Chicken Tacos or Pork, we happen to have two tried-and-true recipes perfectly suited for your next fiesta.  


For Dessert 

Now that the cocktail hour, appetizers, and main course are set, next is to determine what dessert you want to serve. Some may say that every great gathering is topped with a decadent treat, and we completely agree! Leave guests with a memorable note to your All-Mexican cuisine evening with the oh-so-delicious Mexican Fried Ice Cream or even a batch of freshly made churros... yum.
