Introducing… Puesto X Califia Farms Frozen Oatmilk Horchata!

Get your Califia Farms Oatmilk fix at Puesto!

We’ve partnering with Califia Farms on a Frozen Horchata made with Califia’s Oatmilk. Their lovable Oatmilk is unsweetened, has no gums or stabilizers, and is made from whole grain gluten-free oats that are grown in North America. The result is a delicious, creamy and non-dairy drink you can enjoy all August long.

A dollar from each horchata purchases will benefit Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry. Chefs Cycle is a fundraising endurance event featuring award-winning chefs and members of the culinary community fighting hunger outside the kitchen. Chefs Cycle engages culinary talents to complete a three day, 300 mile ride to raise funds and awareness in support of No Kid Hungry. The 2020 ride has a goal of 275 chefs riding to help raise $2 million, which translates into 20 million meals for kids facing hunger.

Taco of the Month

This August, we’re bringing you a smoked fish & salsa macha taco!

Made with house smoked Barramundi, the Barramundi is cooked “a la Mexicana” with onions, tomatoes, cilantro and green chile. This taco is sweet, smokey and spicy. We top it off with avocado, our salsa macha, peanuts and micro chives.

One last month to enjoy our Summer Cocktails!

DRINKING & KNOWING THINGS

What’s in it: Mezcal, ancho chile liqueur, orange and lemon juices, and egg white.

This is a slightly spicy, smoky, citrusy concoction with a cap of airy foam on top. Using an egg white to create froth dates back to classic cocktail days, as early as the 1860s. There is no “eggy” taste. When the cocktail is shaken, the egg white enriches the texture like in a meringue.

ROSÉ ALL DAY

What’s in it: London dry gin, rosé wine, elderflower liqueur, muddled raspberries, and fresh mint.

Crisp, refreshing rosé wine is a summer staple. Pairing it with dry gin gives it body, balance and booziness. Muddled raspberries and a touch of elderflower liqueur soften the drink into an easy-drinking seasonal favorite.

MEZCAL LEMONADE

What’s in it: Añejo tequila, mezcal, fresh lemon juice, ground canela, and smoked lemon.

Nothing says summer like lemonade! Our version takes it south of the border with tequila and mezcal, with a hint of Mexican canela. A smoked lemon garnish pulls all the flavors together.
