For Tasting Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, the Taste Winchester History Food Tour offers you a segment featuring the Winchester On The Rocks Week!  Our stop today is at Sexi Mexi on Piccadillly Street. Winchester on the Rocks is running this year from January 13th through January 19th, a fine selection of establishments will offer their “signature cocktail” for participating patrons!

After all the drinks have been drunkened, it’s time to vote! Each establishment has paper ballots and you can also vote online at!  Adult beverages are $7 across the board, and the “Mocktail” category, for those who wish to try something sans alcohol, especially if you’re doing “Dry January” — each location has a non-alcoholic signature drink for $5 across the board.

Participating locations and the names of their signature adult beverages are as follows:

  • SEXI MEXI – Tequila Mockingbird
  • BREWBAKER’S – The Trump Card
  • CORK STREET TAVERN – Shenandoah Cinn-Ful Cider
  • EL CENTRO – Cococado Float
  • MACADO’S – Apple Pie Martini
  • OAK STONE PIZZA – Busy Little Bee
  • PICCADILLY PUBLIC HOUSE – Crimson & Clover
  • ROMA OLD TOWN – Who’s Your Honey
  • VILLAGE SQUARE – Winter Sun Cocktail
  • GEORGE’S FOOD & SPIRITS – (two options) George’s Bloody Orange Fizz & George Washington’s Apple Blossom Smash

Part of the theme for this year’s competition is sugar & spice — so to learn more details, check out our short Tasting Tuesday Video, brought to everyone LIVE from Sexi Mexi earlier today where we enjoyed a Tequila Mockingbird and the “mocktail” offering, also creatively named Tequilling Me Softly!  Find out which restaurant gives patrons the choice of spirit for their signature cocktail.  Find out whose drink features peach and honey flavors or has the spicy addition of a slice of jalapeno pepper!

And as always, we encourage everyone to come on down and sample each participating restaurant’s signature cocktail creation and then hit Winchester On The Rocks to VOTE for:

  1. Best Cocktail Name
  2. Best Cocktail Presentation
  3. Favorite Mocktail
  4. Favorite Bartender
  5. Favorite Winchester on the Rocks Cocktail

Get out there and meet your owners, servers, and bartenders.  Ask about their creation and it’s ingredients.  Vote!  And please, everyone drink responsibility, and when in doubt, call for a ride.  Better still, bring along a designated driver so everyone gets home safely!

And thank you, Cristina Willis (owner of Sexi Mexi), for permitting us to go live, for preparing an incredible drink, and stepping up during the broadcast when Anthony put you on the spot because he needed help with the ingredients!
