Taco Bell adding booze at 300 new locations

Chain opening new 'cantina-syle' restaurants

Fast-food giant Taco Bell is planning an expansion with more than 300 new restaurants in urban areas, ditching drive-thrus and offering alcohol, according to Food & Wine.

The new restaurants will be "cantina-style" with new artwork, open kitchens and digital menu boards. These locations will also serve beer, wine, sangria and "Twisted Freezes," which will be slushies made with tequila, rum or vodka.

"One of the cool things happening in America right now is the revitalization of urban areas, and we're seeing millennials moving into downtown areas," said Mike Grams, Taco Bell's COO.

Grams says with the addition of these new locations, it shows Taco Bell "isn't afraid to try new things."
