Cinco de Mayo cocktail: Make this kale matcha margarita from Loosie’s Cafe

There’s a new drinks destination, opening just in time for Cinco de Mayo.

The Loosie Rouge team in Williamsburg converted its patio into an all-day cafe, launching May 5. At Loosie’s Cafe (93 S. Sixth St., Williamsburg, loosiescafe.com), start the day with matcha lattes and coffee from Toby’s Estate, alongside grain bowls and superfood doughnuts, then enjoy frozen margaritas and rosé in the airy, laid-back space.

Among the cocktail offerings is a kale matcha margarita ($10), made with MatchaBar ceremonial-grade matcha. Get it during happy hour (daily from noon-6 p.m.) for just $5, or make it yourself this Cinco de Mayo as a healthier spin on the typical marg.
