Golden Hour at La Reina

Golden Hour at La Reina

Down Cerrillos Road from my house, about a 15 minute walk, is the recently revamped motel El Rey. Inside they have a lovely bar called La Reina, and it’s one of my favorite spots for an early evening cocktail. I especially like bringing the drinks out to their patio when the sun is still shining. My go-to cocktails here are the Negroni Rubia (with mezcal!), La Ultima Palabra and the Ranch Water, and when in doubt I just order a mezcal from their list.

When Molly was in town, we came here after a long day of shooting her krispies (Lady Krispie.com) . See the photos from the shoot here. The outside has a nice private patio with black and white striped cushions and it’s a very calming place to sit in the sun and sip a good drink. The inside is super cute as well, defintely worth a visit if you’re nearby.
