Adelitas Cantina is already known for its extensive tequila list and thirst-quenching margaritas, but the new Palenque, with a side entrance around the corner from the main restaurant's front door, gives special focus to the mezcals and antojitos of Oaxaca. There are more than 75 mezcals to choose from, and the staff is ready to field your questions in order to steer you in the right direction. A pour of the smoky spirit, sipped from custom-made clay cups, along with a side of spicy peanuts and chapulines (Dios mío — those are toasted grasshoppers!) will take you far, far south of Denver.
