The Anthracite Café in Wilkes-Barre is known for its creative and large dishes (Heart Attack Burger, anyone?), and that creativity spills right onto the drink list. Enter the Mango Sangarita.
It's just what you would expect, a mixture of margarita, sangria and some fruit flavor, but what really makes it stand out is its size.
Our slogan is ‘Big food, big drinks, big fun,' Anthracite manager Lauren Kaye said. Who doesn't love a big cocktail? It's a real showstopper.
It seems like any time someone orders one and it comes out of the bar through the table area, people see it and order one for themselves.
The Mango Sangarita combines tequila, mango puree, Triple Sec and sangria into a large scooner to make a tasty, chilly and sweet drink.
The drink was created by owner Mike Prushinski, the man behind many a dish at the restaurant. It's been on the menu for quite some time, and Kaye said it isn't going anywhere any time soon.
The bonus to this libation?
It's great to share with your friends, Kaye said. All you have to do is ask for extra straws.
