6 Must-Try Happy Hour Cocktails

Happy hour drinks at Gringo's.

What’s a night out to eat, especially a social night out at happy hour, without a delicious cocktail? Once the drinks come out, the fun begins, and whether you’re grabbing food with friends or just visiting for something to drink, Gringo’s Tacos has got you covered. Our variety of cocktails will bring your happy hour to the next level! Read on to learn more about some of our most mouth-watering cocktails, so that you can be ready to order and get the fun started as soon as you arrive!

Gringo’s Margarita

Although we’re known for our tacos, our food isn’t the only thing that we’re proud enough to put our name on. Next time you set out through Jersey City or Staten Island with friends for happy hour, come to Gringo’s and try our Gringo’s Margarita. This incredible drink is made with blanco tequila, cointreau, and lime, and for an extra $1 you can add a signature “flava” such as white peach, mango, or strawberry. This drink will hit the spot, and will pair perfectly with anything on our menu.

Mayan Mule

For a refreshing drink with a real kick, consider trying a Mayan Mule! A combination of mezcal, pineapple, ginger beer, and lime, this drink is a favorite among tequila-lovers who aren’t looking for a margarita. When it comes to Jersey City or Staten Island bars, we at Gringo’s have so many drinks to offer, and we’d love to make a Mayan Mule just for you next time you stop by.

Mex on the Beach

We specialize in the fusion of Mexican and American cuisine, and our exciting flavors carry through to drinks like our Mex on the Beach. This cocktail is made with blanco tequila, lemongrass, fresh watermelon, and pressed pineapple, and its fruity flavors can’t be beat. Whether you drink it on its own during happy hour or pair it with one of our signature tacos, this drink will bring your night out to new heights!

El Chapo

For a modern twist on an old-fashioned classic, our El Chapo is sure to satisfy. This drink brings you flavors of jalapeno infused blanco tequila, blood orange, and lime, and is a great choice for happy hour any night of the week. Keep in mind that you can order any of our drinks by the glass or by the pitcher, so the fun can continue far into the night!

Tijuana Street Tea

If you’re craving fruity flavors when you hit the bars in Jersey City, come to Gringo’s for our Tijuana Street Tea. This drink is filled with the flavors of passionfruit fruit tea, peach vodka, and strawberry rum, and has the potential to become your new favorite happy hour choice.

Summer in Mexico

We want our drinks to reflect our Mexican-inspired cuisine, and our Summer in Mexico cocktail is the perfect example of this creative fusion. This drink, which is a combination of pineapple vodka, mango, coconut water, limon, and passion fruit foam is perfect to keep for yourself or share with friends! Like it says in the name, this drink is an essential for a summer night out.
