Overview

Join us for a Virtual Tacos & Tequila Night where we will be making Tacos Arabes and Spiked Lemonana!

Arab Tacos originated in the Puebla region of Mexico. The recipe is influenced by Arab immigrants, specifically from the Levant Region (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine), who immigrated to Mexico in the early 20th century.

Lemonana is our favorite Middle Eastern mint lemonade slushy, which mixes really well with a clear tequila for your drinking pleasure.
