Mexican Mondays with Chef Eduardo Sandoval

Chef Eduardo Sandoval grew up in the border town of El Paso, Texas, neighboring ciudad Juarez. He was surrounded by Mexican street food that was served every weekend at his family’s swapmeet, El Bronco, a colorful marketplace where each vendor brought something unique to the table. Inspired by the food that he grew up on, his abuela’s cooking, and the energy of the swapmeet, Chef Eduardo’s “El Broncito” is an homage to the Sandoval family and Mexican street fare.

We are honored to be hosting him this MONDAY, JUNE 2ND for a pop-up “El Broncito,” in a collaboration we’re brilliantly calling Mexican Mondays. “El broncito” will be offering elote, Mexican shrimp cocktail, tortas, tacos, burritos (not California style), and gorditas from 6 – 10 on June 2, with more Mexican Mondays to come.

The Drink will be serving a combo of Mexicali, a crisp Mexican pilsner, with a shot of Pueblo Viejo, our killer well tequila that is 100% agave and produced at produced at San Matias, one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico. We’re also using Monday’s pop-up to re-launch our much beloved summer punch, The Mutiny, made with tequila, watermelon juice, lime, mint and rhubarb bitters. Salud!

Sunday, May 18th: First Annual Pinewood Derby

WHAT: FIRST ANNUAL PINEWOOD DERBY: THE WATERMAN INVITATIONAL

WHEN: SUNDAY, MAY 18TH

TIME: 3 PM – 10 PM

COST: FREE TO ATTEND, $20 TO ENTER THE DERBY

Welcome to The Drink’s First Annual Pinewood Derby: The Waterman Invitational, sponsored by Four Roses Bourbon and the Breckenridge Brewery! This is a classic, scout-style pinewood derby, but open to the public and scaled up to adult tastes.

Imagine former scouts, art and design nerds, and handy folk of the earth coming together to see whose tiny wooden car is the fastest, the handsomest and the most able to beat their friends in a meaningless beer and bourbon fueled race. We think it’s gonna be the best.

In addition to having a scoutin’ good time, we’re having a weenie roast, bug juice punch, drink specials from Four Roses Bourbon and Breckenridge Brewery, a costume contest and color commentators. Grand prize for fastest car is a new snowboard from Breckenridge Brewery. Other prizes to be announced, but you are GUARANTEED they’re going to include a stupid plastic trophy that reminds you of your Little League/Pee Wee Soccer past.

How does one compete?

1. Come on in to The Drink during business hours and register for the race. There is a $20 (cash only please) registration fee which gets you an official pinewood derby kit complete with wood, wheels and axles. It also guarantees a spot in our tournament where you can pit your car against other crafty folk. If you cannot sign-up in person, please email us at info@thedrinkbrooklyn.com to arrange another method of entry.

2. Assemble, paint, decorate, and fine tune your car. You have until tournament day to make it fast and hot! Official rules are included with your kit.

3. Show up for race day on Sunday, May 18th, with your completed car between 3pm and 4pm to be checked in, weighed, and approved by race officials.

4. Get ready to have an awesome time racing your car in timed and photographed heats, set up tournament style. Winning categories include fastest car, best design. There is also an award for best costume, which is open to all attendees, not just racers.

A shot for charity

We are very excited to announce our very first shot for charity! Starting last week, all proceeds from the sale of Mellow Corn whiskey go to the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, one of the city’s leading anti-hunger non-profits.

NYCCAH is an incredible organization we’ve been involved with for many years, and your money will help them connect hungry New Yorkers with healthy food. They also are doing incredibly important advocacy work nationwide to bring attention to the problem of hunger in America.

Mellow Corn is a bottled-in-bond corn whiskey from our friends at the Heaven Hill Distillery, it’s delicious, and it’s a perfect little shot for $7.

Consider your dollars well spent.

Gothamist: “5 Places To Get Boozy Bowls Of Punch In NYC”

THE DRINK: Though they serve other cocktails and booze, this Williamsburg joint specializes in spiced punches, which they conveniently offer by the bowl ($43) or by the glass ($5) with one of their rotating specials. There are lots of rum and bourbon-based offerings, like The Coxswain with Barbancourt Rum, lime, sorrel flower, ginger and tiki bitters. For a less traditional concoction try Smoke on the Water, a bracing mixture of Pueblo Viejo tequila, Sandeman’s Tawny Port, lapsang suchong smoked green tea, lime and xocolatl mole bitters. The old timey Maritime decor is fun but it’s the backyard area that really sells this spot in the summertime.
