Gold Rush

This week we’ve got a fantastic gold colored drink with a nice kick. I don’t do much with tequila, but this really hits the spot. It’s a nice balance of alcohol burn and a pinch of sweet. If you’re looking for something with tequila this is certainly worth a try. The drink’s jewel gold color makes for an inviting start in addition to the strong agave aroma. The drink starts sweet, moves quickly to the strong taste of Grand Marnier, then finishes with the familiar taste of Tequila. Overall this drink is a solid 7.5/10, it’s not perfect, but if tequila is your choice spirit, this could easily be an 8.5 for you. On the alcohol taste scale though you’re also looking at about a 7.5/10… this drink certainly has some kick!

 

Gold Rush

1 1/2 oz Gold Tequila
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz Rose’s Lime Juice
Lime Wedge

Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze lime wedge over the top and drop it in. (Note: I didn’t have a lime wedge at the time of making it, but I used a few drops of lime juice to compensate)

Debutante

What another drink this week!? Yep here comes another recipe so good I couldn’t let it wait until next week. Taste wise the drink reminds me of a “Jade” (recipe on the menu page). You don’t really taste the peach here, but you get a nice sweet/sour taste with a little mint afterward. This is a great use of Tequila, and I’m really happy that it’s the first Tequila drink here at MoM.
