Where to Find Great Bar Specials on Saturday

platino-websmallDrink specials are hard to find on the weekend, which is precisely the time when we want them. But I recently found an excellent deal. The Hornet has some of the best Saturday drink specials I've seen in town, and they're not just affordable---they also feature local ingredients. Their menu of cocktails made with spirits from Colorado's craft distilleries are half-priced on Saturdays. The Mules over Moscow (regularly $7) is a popular choice, featuring Goat Vodka from Peach Street Distillers mixed with ginger liqueur, fresh lime, cucumber, and ginger beer. The Painkiller (regularly $8) features Montanya Platino Light Rum from Montanya Distillers along with cream of coconut, pineapple juice, and nutmeg. For those of you hoping to pair a beer with your football game, all Colorado microbrews on tap are on special for $3 on Saturdays as well. 76 Broadway, 303-777-7676
