Any trip to Steamboat Springs deserves a trip to Bésame . Not only is the sister restaurant to the uber-popular Mambo serving up a well-regarded menu of Latin fusion cuisine – they recently hosted a dinner at the venerable James Beard House in NYC – but the drinks are worth the trip, too.
Full of flavor and a serious kick, one to order at Bésame is the Tipsy Carrot, made with blanco tequila, carrot juice, lime juice and habañero syrup.
“The Besame Tipsy Carrot is a little bit spicy, a little bit healthy and a lot boozy!” restaurateur Hannah Hopkins tells thirsty. “Get Tipsy at Besame!”
