Rio Grande/Uncle Julio’s | April 19, 2009

My favorite summer drink of all time is a frozen swirl margarita/sangria. And they are good at Rio Grande in Ballston. A couple of these during Friday happy hour and you’re good to go 😉


The drink is good, but not the reason for this post. Behold. El Plato Gordo:


Serves 3-4. Ribs, steak, chicken, bacon wrapped shrimp, & fresh flour tortillas. Yummmmmmmm.

  2. I might have to try that frozen swirl margarita/sangria drink- during the summer I’m more of a Mojito man.
