Death & Co.'s Kaplan and Day Create Cocktail List for Rosa Mexicano Chain

The national Mexican food chain Rosa Mexicano has turned to David Kaplan and Alex Day—both of Death & Co. fame, who last year formed a consulting concern—to create the new cocktail program as the entity's various locations.

Drawing on the cuisine in question, Kaplan and Day have focused on tequila and mezcal cocktails, as well as some beer drinks. Some are stirred cocktails, which are not often featured at high volume restaurants because of the time and care they take to make. Take a look:
