Tequila Matador Recipe


Tequila Matador

As you can tell from the name, the Tequila Matador drink is a tequila based cocktail that contains Tequila. Duh, but what else?

The drink is filled with pineapple juice and fresh lime juice that complements the tequila spirit extremely well. It’s less widely known than the margarita, which is strange because the Matador is a damn good drink.

It’s very easy to drink because the juice and lime juice really mellows out the tequila alcohol.

You can even say this could be some crazy variant of a screwdriver, which has vodka and orange juice. Just a refreshing drink if you had to bunch it altogether.

It’s also usually presented in either a martini glass or champagne flute. You can even just make this in a margarita glass.

Why not, right?


Instead of fresh lime juice, you could replace it with sweet and sour.
