Beat the freeze at Garcia Brogan's

It’s the middle of January and you are walking through frozen downtown Lowell. As you pass by the countless pubs that line the cobblestone streets of this classic city you can not help but yearn for something more- more than a Bud Light, more than a Cape Coddah or Blueberry Stoli and Sprite, and more than even a pint of Guinness. You are in search of something that will satisfy your insatiable desire for a drink that will not only provide you with something to sip on with friends, something much more than a cocktail that when imbibed will loosen you up and make you feel like dancing, and even something more exciting than that shot of tequila that will take you to the brink of that undesired trip to the restroom. You need a beverage that has the power to transform your blasé winter mood into what can only be described as summer satisfaction. You need a Cactus Bowl from Lowell’s new Irish/ Mexican restaurant and bar: Garcia Brogans.

The Cactus Bowl is a giant concoction of both dark and light rum, Triple Sec, grenadine, and a splash of pineapple juice that can put the rhythm of Mexican music into even the stiffest of drinkers. Made to be shared and served with two overly long straws, this delicious sweet cocktail has the perfect amount of kick to keep patrons coming back for more. When coupled with the upbeat Cantina style ambiance that the Garcia side of this new fusion of great cultures has created, the Cactus Bowl reveals itself as the perfect choice.

Next time you are fed up with shoveling snow and drinking boring beers that don’t even come with outrageously long straws or festively colorful bowls, treat yourself to a Cactus Bowl or three, thaw yourself out, and have a great time.

For more info: Garcia Brogans 131 Middlesex St. Lowell 978-446-0005
Hours: 11:30 a.m. - 2 a.m.

    next literary stop: gin & lemonade out of an island jug in the fish house, or perhaps a dark & stormy sipped while sitting on a stool at the Sand Bar beside Donna Jean?? can't wait for the next one...
