Coyo Taco's Secret Bar: 50 Tequilas and PaletaRitas

Coyo's PaletaRita: refreshing and boozy.
Wynwood's Coyo Taco is pretty straightforward: a fast-casual place to get tacos, guacamole, and Jarritos. But step beyond the small dining area and past the bathrooms, and you'll find a secret lounge. There, more than 50 bottles of tequila and mezcal glow by the light of novena candles. It's a strange and lovely mix of saints and spirits.

The bar, open daily beginning at 5 p.m., has no name, though Coyo partner Anna Robbins says people have been calling it the "secret bar" or, as Urban Daddy dubs it, "tequila wonderland." But what's in a name when you have a cool hidden bar with a secret back entrance and a tequila-forward menu of drinks?

Lovers of Irish cream always keep their home bar well stocked with Bailey's. But there's a boozy Irish cream on the market, and it's just as easy to guzzle.

You might already be acquainted with Kerrygold from your visits to the cheese and butter aisle at Publix. The Irish brand has been around for half a century and is carried in more than 90 countries, but now it's expanding its dairy portfolio to include alcohol. And Florida is one of the only two markets to carry the Irish cream liqueur.

This first-time event celebrated the art of the tropical cocktail, with master bartenders from some of the country's best tiki bars creating inspired drinks.

Guests were issued a sand dollar, to be thrown into the treasure chest of their favorite drink. Cocktails were also judged by a crack team of experts including Emeril Lagasse and Jeff "Beachbum" Berry.
