Vieux Carre, Imperial
$5 before 6 pm daily, 10-11 pm Sunday-Thursday, 11 pm-midnight Friday and Saturday.
This is the majesty of tap cocktails—that this unholy New Orleans mix can be a mere $5. It is perhaps the best deal in town.
Sangria del Angel, Interurban
$5 from 3-6pm weekdays, 10 pm-close Sunday.
The angel in question is Angel Teta of Spanish spot Ataula—and this mix of fruit, vinho verde, moscato chinato and P.Quiles vermouth is cheap, fun and perfect.
Slow Burn, Aalto Lounge
$2 from 5-7 daily
Cheap vodka infused with serrano and mixed with pineapple and lime. It is the cheapest sweet heat you'll ever find.
Gin and Tonic, Rum Club
$5 at happy hour 4-6 pm.
Seriously, though: the house tonic at Rum Club makes the world seem bright, and you won't get a better $5 G + T.
A previous version of this article mis-cited the price of the Old Fashioned at Branch on Alberta. It has been raised to $7.
