Rastro's New Cocktails...and Sandwiches.

Somethin's brewin' at Rastro... cocktails...and sandwiches too. Happy Hour just got happier with Rastro's new line-up...

I've always been a fan of Rastro's Sidecar (see more on Rastro's cocktails and Spanish dishes here at, but Cynthia and Iya Nakpil have been busy brewing up some cool new cocktails. Rastro's TCT, a tea-based martini, sweet and lined with sugar, and one smooth Earl Gray Martini with a kick. And if you're wondering what "TCT" means, that's "Tita Cynthia's Tea" for you.   

Why not put a little hair on your chest with one of Rastro's new shots, Rastro's Naughty and Nice, a crisp and clean vodka shot with apples dusted in cinnamon and brown sugar. Take a shot, and finish with the sweet apples as the chaser. A little heat from the shot followed by the comforting sweetness of apples with cinnamon and sugar, contrasting flavors that will make you go for one more round. 

Or how about a glass of bubbly with a surprise? The French 75, a sparkling wine blended with a shot of gin, a potent addition to this deceptively innocent looking cocktail. The dryness of the gin blends well with the sweet sparkling wine, combining for one smooth and easy libation. 

Brandy Alexander, a refreshing and rich blend of brandy, Kahlua and cream. The creamy concoction reminds one of the holidays, adding that festive vibe to Rastro's Happy Hour.

In addition to Rastro's current signature tapas and Spanish dishes, a new line of sandwiches will soon be introduced to pair with your cocktails. Manchego and Jamon Serrano, served with aioli and patatas fritas is the perfect light dish to go with cocktails, with the bold flavors of Spanish ham and cheese on crisp and buttery baguette.

Craving for pork? Go for the Organic Pork Chorizo with caramelized onions and served with aioli and patatas fritas, just can't go wrong with  pork with a round of drinks. 

Something light? Rastro's got that covered too. Grilled Vegetables with Pesto, also served with aioli and patatas fritas.  Fresh, clean flavors with just a hint of smokiness.

Then, there's Rastro new Bourbon Bacon Slab, tender bacon glazed with sweet bourbon. Just can't get better than that...even better with another round of Rastro's cool new cocktails.

Great cocktails, great food. But there's more. Stay tuned for my next post on Rastro's cool Valentine's menu. For more on Rastro's hip Spanish-inspired cuisine, check out my previous post here at
