There are two things in life that thrill us most. The first is watching Argentina and Germany battle it out for World Cup glory. The second is ripping foil off a Chipotle burrito.

You know the feeling: after a long day, no one gets you like an oversized tortilla stuffed with all that is right in this world. The one thing that could possibly make it better? Something boozy to wash it down with. Sure, some of us are lucky enough to live near a Chipotle with a liquor license. If that’s you, by all means, grab a Patron margarita and get down with your burrito self. As for the rest of us, let’s get creative.

As you unwrap the magic that is a Chipotle burrito (or bowl, or taco...we don’t judge), we rounded up classic drinks from south of the border to take your feasting to the next level. And since it’s Chipotle’s 21st anniversary today — it’s legal! — there’s no better time to pour one out in honor of your favorite, foil-wrapped creation. Here’s to you, Chipotle. Thanks for making our weekday lunches and hangovers a little bit brighter.
