Uptown hotspot Chino Latino has made it onto yet another one of OpenTable's lists of hottest spots in the country. This time, it's for their gorgeous, backlit bar and one of the restaurant's most-colorful drinks on the cocktail menu.

OpenTable ranked the coolest 100 restaurant bars in more than 20 states around the country. While Minnesota didn't have the same turnout on the list that California did -- they garnered 27 spots on the list -- we're still pretty stoked to have that iconic, fiery orange bar repping the Twin Cities.

Singled out as one of Chino Latino's standout cocktails was the Passionate Eruption, a cocktail that runneth-over with blend of Sauza Hornitos Plata, triple sec, sour, and passion fruit. This drink is like a trip to the tropics in a kitschy goblet adorned with hula dancers, lots of fruit, and those awesome little plastic animals. While the price tag is a little steep ($21), the drink is meant for two daring imbibers to share and maybe find a little passion of their own at the bottom of the glass.
