Horchata, Black Ant and San Loco All Open and Serving Margaritas

There is nothing better than a icy cold margarita (or a Mojito or Sangria) on a hot, summer day. Now, Thirsty New Yorkers have even more options, with the opening of Horchata, Black Ant and a new location of San Loco.

This new spot by E Squared Hospitality has a solid menu of cocktails, including Margaritas, Mojitos and Caipirinhas, available in flavors like Watermelon, Passionfruit and Blood Orange. There are Horchatas, too – the Pick Me Up with espresso is delicious.

Black Ant

San Loco

San Loco Williamsburg

When Mexican joint San Loco closed its Williamsburg location in April, fans were bummed about losing a cheap spot to drink. But it recently reopened in a new location nearby and the $6 margaritas and $3.50 beer is back. The $7.50 jar drinks – like Whiskey Sour and Vodka Limeade – are one of the best deals in town. Don’t worry about drinking too many – there are tacos and burritos to help soak up the alcohol. 160 North 4th Street, Williamsburg (other locations in NYC); 718-218-8479; www.sanloco.com
