Quench Your Desert Thirst with these Spirit Specials

 No matter what you do in the Coachella Valley, chances are you’re going to work up a thirst. Just purchase a wristband to take advantage of dozens of $4 drink deals all over town from July 12 to August 18. Here are 7 wonderful ways you can cool off, wet your whistle and toast the 4th Annual Taste of Summer Rancho Mirage.


Acqua California Bistro

71800 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


When you think California cuisine, you think of fresh oranges. Thus, it’s only natural that Acqua features a blood orange margarita. Come to the bistro to see the art or the wonderful view of the mountains and enjoy this $4 drink special in the expanded dining area or the remodeled outdoor patio.


Bernie’s Lounge and Supper Club

69830 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


If you miss the days of the Rat Pack, stop in for live lounge entertainment. Bernie’s is the place where the atmosphere will transport you back to a time when nothing else mattered except for being cool. In order to stay cool during Taste of Summer, sip Bernie’s sangria with fresh fruit for $4.


Burgers & Beer

72773 Dinah Shore Dr., Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


This is a great place for sports fans to grab a frosty beverage. With more than 30 big screens as well as televisions at every booth, you’ll never miss a second of sports action. Just because this restaurant doesn’t also include margarita in the name doesn’t mean they don’t have really refreshing ones. During Taste of Summer, take time to enjoy the $4 lime margarita special. 


Maracas Cantina

72775 Dinah Shore Dr., Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


Ever have the experience where there are so many great drinks on the menu you don’t know which one to pick? We’ll narrow it down to two fantastic choices here. Select the watermelon basil margarita or the pomegranate mojito. Both of these fruity drinks scream summer refreshment. Have either one for $4 during Taste of Summer.


Pinzimini at Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa

71333 Dinah Shore Dr., Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


If you’re the type that believes a true cocktail must have a fancy name, let the bartender at Pinzimini whip you up a Baja Summer Night. This $4 Taste of Summer special features tequila, orange Curaçao, fresh watermelon juice, agave nectar and fresh lime juice with a basil and lime garnish.


Si Bon

40101 Monterey Ave., Suite E5, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


Got something to celebrate? Maybe something simple like a specular sunset or the end of the week? Si Bon understands simple can be special and puts some summer in a glass with a simple but refreshing cocktail. The $4 Bubble Berries drink combines four things: raspberries, blueberries, triple sec and your choice of Champagne.
