The Mexican hand-shaken margarita with Hornitos Reposado is an oft-ordered libation at Southtown favorite Rosario's, though we suggest branching out every so often with a jalapeño or watermelon mint variation, just to keep things interesting. The Mexican eatery also has a hold on the preparation of a classic michelada — their take on the quintessential beer cocktail is equal parts savory, spicy and refreshing. Served in icy, massive Tajin-rimmed goblets, these bloody mary-adjacent tipples are just the ticket for a hot summer day.
