An assortment of brunch-friendly cocktails, playfully nicknamed “Vuelvo de la Vida,” or “Return to Life,” will also be offered, including:  Distrito Bloody Maria, chipotle infused vodka, fresh tomato, horseradish, lime and cilantro;  Sparkling Margarita, Hornitos Plata tequila, orange liquor, lime juice and sparkling wine;  and Ojo Rojo or “Red Eye,” Mexican hot chocolate, coffee, Patron XO, whipped cream, and caramel.  Distrito’s popular Fresh Juices will also be available during brunch.
