My husband dug this recipe up from somewhere, and liked it a lot. Chapala is the name of a lake in Mexico (makes sense with the tequila), but also supposedly means "the place where crickets lay over the water". Of course this contains no crickets, but if you want to use mezcal, feel free to add the worm. Just don't make me watch you drink it if you do that. The pic I posted is a double recipe of this drink, just in case you wondered.
- 1 1⁄2 ounces tequila
- 1⁄2 ounce orange juice
- 1⁄2 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons grenadine
- 1⁄2 teaspoon triple sec
- Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
- Garnish with fresh fruit, if desired.
Great drink! I loved the sweet taste.
Compliments to the bar tenderer, we really enjoyed this tequila based drink a lot. Grenadine gives it nice sweetnes, but not too much. Really pleasant.
I made a punch bowl of this. I did miss calulate and added to much grenadine so it was a bit sweet. But was still very good! I used fresh squeezed lemons and limes. I didn`t shake and strain as directed I added ice to it in a large bowl. Garnish with fresh orange slices. Thanks Sue!
