On Thursday, Nov. 2, Mexican Sugar Cocina y Cantina is taking part in the tradition by hosting an authentic six-course Dia de los Muertos Dinner paired with Avion Tequila. Guests will begin the feast with an amuse-bouche of Citrus Ceviche. The prix fixe menu continues with an assortment of Pan-Latin dishes, including:
- Grilled Octopus and Blood Orange Salad – baby octopus, heirloom cherry tomato, marble potatoes, Frisée Avion Silver and blood orange vinaigrette
- Spice Seared Lomo and Pickled Nopalitos Taco – chile rubbed tenderloin, wild arugula, pickled nopalitos and shaved manchego

- Fig and Chipotle Grilled Lamb Chops – mesquite grilled lamb rack, Latin potato cake, citrus grilled asparagus, Avion Añejo Fig and chipotle sauce
Be sure to save room for the chef-inspired dulce, that’ll be revealed during dinner. This delectable dessert will be paired with the Last Breath, a cocktail created using Avion Espresso, Café de Olla, hazelnut and cream.
Mexican Sugar’s bar, with over 150 tequilas, is a shrine to the agave spirit and their talented craft bartenders are notoriously well versed in the art of the cocktail. In honor of the occasion, these tequila experts will be crafting a different Avion Tequila cocktail for guests to pair with each course served.
