Picture this: You're driving a dusty old Winnebago on a long-haul trek across the American Southwest. It's been a lonely stretch of road for some time now. No other cars. No one to talk to. No one, that is, but a dog-eared pin-up calendar tacked to the shuddering wall of the Winnie. It's August, but the month is still on December, and the girl on that page is pretty and mean-looking, and she's the person you've been talking to for the last 100 miles or so. You like to imagine she's been here next to you the whole ride, and what does a girl like that like to drink? Black coffee every morning, tequila in the evening. The bar at Taste combines both in its cocktail "Winnebago Pin-Up," a combination of Sump Coffee's cold brew and a pepper-infused Milagro Silver. It's a bold, dark, coffee-forward drink that's almost too hard to be served in a champagne coupe, but it'll keep you going on a long, lonely night.
