As you might remember, over the course of last year I read and reviewed several books about magic in cooking and drinking. 3 of my favorite things, food, booze, and magic! A while back I stumbled across a cocktail recipe on Liquor.com that sounded good and had a very cool name, Devil’s Margarita. I thought, why not try it out and apply a little of what I learned from all those books to find deeper meaning.
So, what goes into a Devil’s Margarita?
1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce red wine
Garnish: lime wheel
Add the tequila, lime juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
Strain into a cocktail glass.
Float the red wine on top by slowly pouring it over the back of a bar spoon so it pools on the surface of the drink.
Garnish with a lime wheel.
This is delicious, and obviously super bad ass in appearance. That alone is enough reason to try it yourself, but how about we apply what we’ve learned from all those books to justify drinking it even more?
Tequila, which SO MANY people like to bitch about and avoid, is thought to have protection, banishing, and purification properties. Everyone quit being such stinkers when it comes to tequila! Lime is associated with friendship, luck, hex breaking, and act as an anti-depressant. Wine provides inspiration, prosperity, and love.
If you enjoy cocktails, I suggest checking out Liquor.com.
And if you want to have a whole lot of fun, I’d suggest any and all of these titles:
