I am SO excited about today’s post because I get to share about one of my favorite local Jackson area restaurants, then give y’all some dolla dolla bills to go spend there! Woo hoo!
Babalu in Fondren is one of my favorite spots in Jackson. Not only are the food and drinks outstanding, but the atmosphere is second to none! I love the modern minimalism they have going on inside, and their outdoor patio just seems to get cooler and cooler every spring. They’re constantly making it more diner friendly!
A friend of mine and I got a coveted patio seat last week for happy hour and just had the best time talking mom life, blogging, photography, and what not over guacamole and cocktails!
Their tableside guacamole is the BEST. It’s got the perfect blend of flavors and never ever disappoints. It’s even been known to turn guac haters into guac lovers. True story! It’s that good.
And the cocktails!!!! I am a major fan of the Pepe O’Malley. It’s a light, crisp, and refreshing gin drink that was made for warm spring and summer days. My friend and I got a couple of different drinks to share/try and they were all the bomb. (Full disclosure: we ordered drinks that sounded like they’d be pretty for pictures! ha!) I truly and honestly have never had a cocktail from Babalu that I didn’t like. They’re probably best known for their Baba-rita which is a killer pomegranate margarita, so that’s always a good place to start if you want to work your way through their cocktail menu!
Now for the fun part: THE GIVEAWAY!!!
