Each week, we order the same cocktail at two different bars for a friendly head-to-head battle; this week, it’s a battle inside one bar. Go yourself, taste both drinks and tell us what you like about each by tagging @pghcitypaper on Twitter or Instagram and using #CPBoozeBattles.

Round Corner Cantina


3720 Butler St., Lawrenceville

Drink: Del Sol

Ingredients: Dos Equis lager, lime, ice, salted rim

Our take: This classic michelada is light and refreshing, and thus a perfect candidate for those nights when a low ABV is desired. The lager and lime balance yeasty notes and acidity. Think Lime-A-Rita but fancy.

Vs.

Round Corner Cantina


3720 Butler St., Lawrenceville

Drink: España 

Ingredients: Dos Equis lager, signature Bloody Mary mix, jalapeño, lime

Our take: Spicy, vegetal and salty, with the lager providing a neutral and slightly carbonated base on which to build complex flavors. Jalapeños make a strong showing on the palate and encourage the drinker to savor the cocktail slowly.
