Enjoy a Taste of Santa Fe History

Explore the Santa Fe Margarita Trail with a “Juliarita” – Inspired by the Famous Spirit of La Posada

In 1882, a prosperous merchant named Abraham Staab built his mansion on property that now belongs to La Posada. Abraham and his elegant wife, Julia, entertained Santa Fe society in the grand residence that is now home to the Staab House Bar. Travel+Leisure Magazine raves that “The Staab House is the coziest bar in Santa Fe.”

Local legend maintains that Julia loved her home so much that she has never left it. Her alleged spirit has been featured on national television and in many ghost tours and is now the subject of the book “American Ghost” by her great-great-granddaughter, Hannah Nordhaus.

Enjoy a taste of Santa Fe history with a Juliarita – the margarita named after Julia Staab. The ingredients are inspired by and made from apricots that still grow on a tree planted in the 1880’s by Julia and her friend, Archbishop Lamy, founder of the Santa Fe cathedral.  

Each Juliarita includes the following flavorful ingredients:
1/2 oz. homemade apricot liqueur infused with tequila*
1 1/4 oz. El Tesoro Platinum de Don Felipe 100% Blue Agave Tequila
1/4 oz. Cointreau
Juice of one whole lime
Apricot wedge*

*From Julia’s apricot tree, originally planted in the 1880’s

Savor a Juliarita at the Staab House Bar or on our patio.
