Tequila Thursday: All The King's Men
It's Thursday, which means it's tequila time. Got a favorite tequila cocktail? Let us know about it in the comments!
We're trying to extend our repertoire of delicious tequila cocktails, but we might as well quit right here: this is one of the best drinks we've tried in recent memory.
We found All The King's Men in Joanne Weir's Tequila: A Guide to Types, Flights, Cocktails, and Bites. The recipe comes from Duggan McDonnell of Cantina in San Francisco, and it may sound like an unlikely combination of ingredients. Ruby port contributes a blackberry-like fruitiness, balanced by a squeeze of fresh lemon. Averna makes it rich and complex, tequila adds some heat, and a dose of intensely spicy ginger beer brings it all together. If you're a fan of ginger and berries, but fear fruity drinks, we highly recommend you give this cocktail a try.
