Tequila Espresso, The New Vodka Red Bull?
by Trey Shelton in Trends In The US, Food & Drink
A new drink is rising up in the bars of LA, Tequila Espresso. Served over ice and in a rocks glass, it’s an interesting alternative for anyone looking for the simultaneous caffeine and alcohol buzz. As for the origins of the drink, the farthest back we can trace it is to a rather mischievous bartender at the Chateau Marmont, where many a great thing has begun and ended.
Directions are simple: Pour your choice of tequila over ice, pull a fresh espresso, and pour the espresso into the glass.
The drink often creates a polarizing love/hate reaction depending on your passion for the ingredients. Word of caution: drinking more than 2 of these is probably not a great idea if you plan on getting any sleep that evening. Patron has even come out with an espresso flavored Tequila as well.
