Cheers to the weekend!
Madrina’s is an iconic bar in downtown Gainesville known for their classy atmosphere and signature cocktails. They are open Thursday to Sunday starting 5 pm. They have very limited seating with a few tables indoors and one table outdoor, so I suggest going right around 5pm for a seat. It can also feel a bit crowded indoors because of the small space, so just be aware of that.
While their drinks range around $10-11, during Happy Hour (5-7pm daily) you can get select drinks like Old Fashioned, Margarita, Mojitos and more for $5-6!
As a matcha lover I really enjoyed the Matcha Colada ($10), which was creamy and sweet with just a hint of bitterness. It is made with rum, pineapple, coconut cream, matcha, and maldon salt. The drink came garnished with a pineapple leaf!
The Guava The Hutt ($10) is also a fantastic choice if you like fruity drinks, as it has Vodka, Guava, Aperol, Lime, Vanilla, and lots of ice. The color of this drink was so pretty!
Which drink would you try?
