Mexican Firing Squad

December 17, 2021
Mexican Firing Squad Tequila Lime Juice Grenadine Bitters Soda Water Iced Cocktail

The Mexican Firing Squad was first recorded by cocktail writer, historian, and world-traveler Charles H. Baker Jr. in his 1939 book titled The Gentleman’s Companion. He came across the Firing Squad at the famed Prohibition-era bar La Cucaracha, in Mexico City.

Its ruby hue is a bit misleading as the flavor is only slightly sweet due to the slash of grenadine. Overall it is refreshing and balanced, if you like a Paloma then this tequila drink deserves your attention.

Ingredients

2 oz TEQUILA
