Osorio's Latin Fusion, an upscale Appleton, WI restaurant has introduced an entire menu of out of the ordinary specialty margaritas, created to compliment its unique flair on International and Latin cuisine.
A popular, upscale Appleton, Wisconsin restaurant is quickly becoming the Northern answer to Florida's "Margaritaville". While warm sandy beaches and palm trees aren't a part of the landscape in Wisconsin, the ability to get a little "summertime in a glass" has become a reality.
Osorio's Latin Fusion has introduced a full menu of specialty margaritas meant to tantalize the taste buds and provide that delicious taste of summer that so many Northerners are craving as the brutal winter of 2014 slowly melts away. From the classic House Lime, created with home made lime mix, to the extraordinary Fresh Ginger/Mango Margarita, hand muddled with exotic fresh fruit, Osorio's Latin Fusion offers a unique variety of tastes for the Margarita drinker.
"It's not everyday that you can find a jalapeno margarita on a menu," commented Jennifer Finnell, frequent guest bartender and sister of co-owner, Kim Finnell. "One of my favorites, the Caliente Margarita will a put a bounce in your step with the spicy-smooth combo of jalapeno and cucumber. That's just unheard of."
Ultimately representing the phrase, "summertime in a glass", the Cucumber/Basil Margarita is a crowd favorite, offering the cool refreshment expected from a drink carrying with it such a tag. Also topping the list of uniquely Osorio's Margaritas is the exclusive Sangriarita, created by the Appleton restaurant owners and available only at Osorio's Latin Fusion.
"The Sangriarita has a beautiful presentation," stated co-owner Kim Finnell. "Our House Lime is used as the base and our home made Sangria tops it off, providing sweet and sour flavors accented by a subtle red wine, juices and fruit. I strongly recommend it for the wine drinker experimenting with Margaritas!"
While specialty margaritas are certainly gaining the Appleton restaurant a reputation as THE place for the Latin libations, the full bar offers domestic and imported beer, wine and spirits in addition to both signature martinis and specialty cocktails not found at the corner tavern.
"To complement our cuisine, created by our chefs and from old family recipes, we couldn't very well offer an ordinary drink menu. That would just be wrong," added a playfully grinning Kim Finnell. "We found that our customers were very open to trying new combinations and that spawned the Annual Margarita Dinner last year. No worries, the event is soon to be on the calendar!"
