“Don’t Worry, Be Happy Hour Now!”

Bethany Heckman (Local Roots Food Tours Guide) takes us down Happy Hour Lane in Sacramento.

Cafeteria 15L features the “Cabo Cooler”: Cazadores Reposado and Apple Pucket, muddles with fresh strawberries and oranges and topped with fresh orange juice. Yum! If you aren’t much of a tequila drinker, try the “Loose Juice”: Hendricks gin, St. Germain, muddles with cucumber and lime, topped with soda water. It’s to die for. Cafeteria 15L also offers yummy bites to eat at an amazing price!

Ella Dining Room & Bar

Ella not only offers a beautiful area to sip the night away, the drinks are beautiful as well.
“The Georgia Porch” is perfect for summer sipping: Four Roses bourbon, crème de peche, Amaro Ciociaro, lemon, egg whites and a touch of cinnamon. Delicious. Or try the simple peach mojito, white rum, peach puree, mint and lime, keep in mind the house made peach puree is made with the freshest of summer crops!
With blueberries in season, the margarita that Ella offers is a delight. 100% Blue Agave Blanco tequila, Delta blueberries (keepin’ it local!), agave syrup, combier and lime! Cheers to you!

Enjoying the outdoor patio Tapa the World offers is amazing.

After trying a Caipirinha, move on to the “Kasbahpolitan”: Level One vodka, fresh (and delicious!) pomegranate juice and cointreau. Ask them to muddle a fresh lemon in the glass before pouring and it adds an extra kick that makes all the difference! Add something off their tapas list and you have an amazing evening all ready to go.

What Folks are Saying!

The day that we could go, Local Roots was offering the City of Trees Tour. My husband and I went with my daughter who recently moved to Sacramento. As it happened, we were the only ones on the tour that day. Our guide, Bethany, was just wonderful; she was knowledgeable and very engaging. We are not big eaters and I was concerned that six stops might be just too much food. However, it was not a problem. We probably did not finish any sampling but ate enough at each that I did not feel terribly wasteful, and everything was truly delicious. * Visited October 2011
