Spanish tapas and Southern fare collide at Botanero, an eatery in Rockville that's as popular for its happy hour as it is for weekend brunch. If you're interested in happy hour, come to Botanero between 4 and 7 p.m. any day of the week or weekend. During this window, you can grab a glass of seasonal sangria for $5, a jalapeno margarita for $8, and sliders or empanadas for $5 apiece.
Brunch is only served on the weekends from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., but it's worth making a special trip. It may not be happy hour, but cocktails still abound. Try the pineapple martini, the sparkling sangria, or a classic mimosa. Any beverage you choose will pair well with entrees like the goat cheese and veggie frittata, the French vanilla waffle, or the fried chicken biscuit in wild mushroom gravy.
