Drink of the Week

At Steamboat Springs, the destination better known as "Ski Town USA," you can immerse yourself in champagne powder all day long. But apr├Ęs ski, the indulgence of choice is the bright-yellow Chicarita served up at Dos Amigos, a Mexican restaurant that's been a fixture in the mountain village since 1975. Tourists, Olympians and townsfolk appreciate Dos Amigos' Western decor, easygoing staff, solid Mexican food and strong drinks, most notably the Chicarita ($5.50). Made with Cuervo tequila, Grand Marnier, sweet-and-sour mix and orange juice, and served on the rocks with a lime wedge and salt rim, this cocktail definitely deserves a double-black-diamond, experts-only warning on the menu. It's for hardcore skiers, boarders and drinkers who drop in from Christmas Tree Bowl -- not for those who stick to bunny hills and wine spritzers.
