After a recent late-night grocery run with my wife and our cute-but-crying infant as co-pilot in the grocery aisle gauntlet, we needed a professionally prepared meal and mixed drink. We found what we needed at Zapata Tequila Bar & Grill (1425 W. Battlefield Road, Springfield, 417-883-7000). Initially unsure if a tequila bar was right for a kiddo, we found a clientele of college-age diners and younger families. I chose my reward for good parenting with a raspberry mojito. The drink arrived with a hearty sprig of rosemary standing inside the clear mojito clouded near the top by red raspberry. In the first sip, I was drawn in by the warm herb fragrance of rosemary that melded with the subtler-than-expected raspberry flavor. The mojito’s herb-forward notes complemented our spicy meal. If you ever find yourself on an evening errand on the west-side of Springfield, why not treat yourself for adulting done right with a refreshing cocktail?
