Tuesday last week, we went over to Max Toste's new restaurant, the Lone Star Taco Bar in Allston next to Deep Ellum. Off of their tequila and mezcal-focused menu, I picked the Chica Fácil since agave spirits seem to go so well with Aperol such as in the Division Bell. The drink began with a lime and tequila aroma that led into a rhubarb and lime sip. The swallow was a smooth orange and agave combination, and overall the drink lived up to its name for it was rather soft and easy to drink.
The euphemisms are getting a bit stale, suffice to say: four people in Boston -- two of whom are much more prolific writers than the other two (including the originator of this blog, who has no excuse apart from laziness) -- who drink and tell.
