Bartenders often borrow ingredients from the kitchen, but now they're making cocktails that taste like full-blown entrées. Steal the idea for your next party and serve this fun taco cocktail from our test kitchen.


  1. Puree 1/2 cup each tomato juice and beef broth, 6 nacho-flavored chips, 1/4 cup cilantro, 4 jalapeno slices, 1/2 teaspoon ancho chile powder and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin; strain through a fine-mesh sieve. For each cocktail, combine 2 ounces of the tomato mixture, 1 ounce tequila, 1/2 ounce mezcal, 1/4 ounce lime juice and a pinch of salt in a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into an ice-filled glass rimmed with ground nacho-flavored chips mixed with more chile powder and cumin; top with Mexican lager. Garnish with cilantro, limes, jalapenos and/or radishes.
