Girls Night at Lolita

in Boston,Food,Nights out

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple good girl friends for girls night. My friends Gabby and Lauren are both moving out of town in August, so we wanted to all get together as a big group before they head out. I also have been missing my friends. Between work and the move, things have been cray over here – I needed some girl time.

We settled on Lolita Cocina and Tequila Bar in the Back Bay, a Mexican restaurant that boasts a huge tequila list and an awesome margarita list. Sold.

A couple of the ladies (Lauren and Stephanie) met up at my house before dinner for drinks. We started with a champagne and peach juice cocktail and photos.

We met up with the other ladies, Devon and Gabby, at the restaurant. Once we got there, I started with the classic Lolita margarita.

We then snacked on some chips and salsa. At Lolita they give you a choice of 3 different salsas/dips, plus a mango and habanero pepper salsa. So good! For dinner, I got the ancho chile chicken quesadilla with a side of their sweet potato fries. The quesadilla was creamy and spicy on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Perfection. The sweet potato fries are my favorite. They’re covered in brown sugar and spices so it’s the perfect balance between hot and sweet. (I apologize for the crappy photos — it was so dark and my iPhone wasn’t cutting it.)

After finishing my first drink, I had a couple glasses of the Rubio Sangria, which was made with rose wine, orange blossom, cointreau, mount gay rum, raspberries, grapes, and strawberries. Amazing!

One of the fun things about Lolita is that they give you a complementary ball of cotton candy topped with pop rocks. We were pretty excited to try it. Gabby was especially excited.

I’ve been to Lolita a couple times now and every time it gets better and better. It’s a little loud on a busy Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night, so don’t expect it to be an intimate date location. But it’s a super fun restaurant perfect for a night of gossip, fun, and food. Healthy Living Summit-ers – if you have time, I highly suggest Lolita!

Readers: What is your favorite type of place to have a girls night out? What’s your favorite type of cuisine? I think if I was forced to live in Mexico and eat their native food for the rest of my life, I would be a very happy camper.

Aw looks like a really fun night! Sangria is the best in the summer. There was a great bar in Ann Arbor where I went to college that served huge pitchers of sangria that you poured into mason jars (as glasses). The seating was almost all outdoors too. It was awesome!

I love drinks in mason jars. There’s a place in Boston that does that too – probably my favorite way to drink a cocktail. Reminds me of the south and BBQ’s.

Sarah you look incredible in that dress. The cutouts are so cute. Love the jewelry. Is it a necklace or attached to the dress? Dress is a great color also. Go girl!
