Skip margaritas and use tequila in a Mexican Firing Squad cocktail
Tequila is often relegated to margaritas or shots, but we like it in our version of the Mexican Firing Squad. This floral cocktail with notes of cinnamon and clove dates back to 1939 in Charles H. Baker Jr.’s now famous book “Around the World with Jigger, Beaker and Flask.”
In an ice-filled shaker, combine 2 ounces Milagro Silver tequila, ¾ ounce (real, pomegranate-based) grenadine, ¾ ounce lime juice and 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Shake vigorously, strain into an ice-filled highball glass, garnish with pineapple and a cherry and enjoy the taste of the Mexican highlands.
