Horse skips on ‘mare-garita mix’ at Okanagan drive-thru liquor store

Vernon’s Longhorn Pub had a four-legged, not four-wheeled, visitor to their drive-thru Tuesday

Longhorn Pub Cold Beer and Wine Store drive-thru saw “their most unique customer” Tuesday afternoon when a horse and its owner rode through to buy some alcohol.

Video contributed by store owner:

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any truth to the rumours that they bought “mare-garita mix.”

The liquor store is still under construction but the renovation is expected to be complete soon.
