A good Mexican dish usually has some combination of sour, spicy, and sweet flavors. Most of Sabina Sabe’s cocktails use all three in a balanced way, while using mezcal and other Mexican spirits like charanda and tequila. Grab a stool at the bar and order the Micky Miguel Miguelito, a cocktail made with mezcal distilled with tamarind, watermelon shrub, and pasilla chili syrup. If you get hungry, order a couple plates to snack on, like lechón gorditas, shrimp aguachile, or molotes de plátano. The atmosphere is pretty laid-back, and while it’s not a full-on party, it’s a perfect stop on a night out with two or three friends.
