SWEET, SALTY, AND SENSATIONAL TEQUILA COCKTAILS
Tequila has a bad reputation. I mean sure, if you consistently serve something out of yard-long bone glasses, then for those occasions the bad reputation is not totally uncalled for. But there is more to the tequila scene than just terrible margaritas, and a row of bad ideas lined up on a shotski. If you have avoided tequila because of some unfortunate episode on your 21st birthday, then perhaps try a reunion tour by mixing up a Paloma or a Watermelon Tequila Spritzer. Believe it or not, there are tequila cocktails out there that weren’t designed to hurt you.
This vibrant blanco tequila drink just requires four ingredients. Green Chartreuse adds just the right amount of sweetness while also bringing out the herbal, spicy flavors of tequila. The balanced flavor profile is completed by fresh lime and grapefruit juices, which also make this strong cocktail very enjoyable.
In this sophisticated drink, tequila, aquavit, Galliano, grapefruit and lime juices, and two kinds of bitters are combined.
Nick Korbee, the head chef and beverage director at Egg Shop in New York City, created a cool cocktail called the Tequila Honey Bee.
In this simple twist on the Last Word, gin is swapped out for mezcal, while Chartreuse is swapped out for Aperol.
The recipe for the Mexican Firing Squad, a tequila-based cocktail, was first published by Charles H. Baker Jr. in Gentleman’s Companion Volume II: Jigger, Beaker, & Flask.
