This is my Matador Cocktail recipe. We don’t want any bulls around because they will knock this delicious cocktail over and that would be a shame. A darn shame.
The Short and Sweet of It
This matador cocktail is really delicious and you should make it.
End of blog post, because that’s all you need to know.
Okay, okay, I will write more because I’m enamored with this matador cocktail!!
That is why I named it the No Bulls Near This Matador Cocktail. If a bull or many bulls came and knocked over this drink then it would be a crying shame that you didn’t get to even take a sip of it.
Although, I can imagine myself on my knees, leaning over and lapping this cocktail up off the floor like a greedy dog, all the time waving my red cape to distract that darn bull from lapping it up beside me.
I’m a proud woman, but I’m not that proud. Not when it comes to a delicious matador cocktail.
When you taste it, you will understand what I’m talking about.
I figured out a few years ago why I liked this matador cocktail so much. Can you guess why I do?
Huh, can you?
Christopher yells from the piano bench: Because it’s like a Margarita?
He is so smart, my Christopher!
Of course, we’ve been married 30 years so he knows me better than anyone.
How to make the Matador Cocktail
We have some Patron Silver tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and pineapple juice. The matador cocktail doesn’t usually have simple syrup, but I find that it’s missing that little bit of sweetness so I only add a tad.
Let’s get started.
First thing I do is slice a ring off the pineapple, cut that ring in half and core it. I cut one of those halves again and I make a little cut in the quarters so I can slide them onto the lip of the glass. Then I set them aside as a garnish for this delicious drink.
I fill my cocktail shaker halfway with ice and add 2 ounces of tequila, 1 ounce lime juice, 1 teaspoon simple syrup and some pineapple juice. I cap the shaker and shake it 20 times.
Time to pour the contents into the tulip glass. I take my two pineapple quarters and stick them on the side of the glass.
Let’s have a look.
