The Internet collectively lost its bananas last week when the news broke that Taco Bell in Chicago was applying for a liquor license. The new restaurant in Wicker Parker plans to be the first Taco Bell to sell booze, causing millions to imagine what Baja Blast would taste like spiked with a healthy dose of tequila.
Now we have an idea of what the first Taco Bell with alcohol will be serving. Thrillist has the scoop:
Along with the typical Taco Bell fare like Crunchwraps and smothered burritos, an outline of the location’s menu, dated Feb. 26th, includes “Wicker Park Specials” such as two draft beer options, as well as “Twisted Freezes,” which are described as “Frozen Beverages featuring Vodka, Tequila, or Rum.” While there’s no mention of the crazy Doritos Locos margaritas of our dreams (or nightmares?), just imagine kicking back at a freaking Taco Bell with a Corona and a pile of tacos. Now that sounds like living más.
Corona is pretty obvious for a Mexican fast food restaurant, but those Twist Freezes sound like a gamechanger. They kind of sound like a legal version of the underground booze slushies that invaded New York City last summer.
But let’s all take one HUGE step back for a second before imagining drunken trips to Taco Bell to slug more booze at 3am. Everyone PUMP THE BRAKES. Liquor licenses = politics and a local rep on a community board in Chicago isn’t a big fan of the plan, so who knows if it will even happen.
Meanwhile, you can still by Baja Blast slushies and spike them with airplane bottles of Patron you pick up for $3 at the liquor store.
