Coctel Adelita

It kicks. Seriously. Five shots of tequila and one shot of Kahlua, and, well… it should kick. It’s a good thing that I took photos before I downed the glass of Coctel Adelita. If I had insisted on sampling it before taking the photos, I might have had a serious case of camera shake and the images would have probably turned out badly blurred.

The recipe is from the same article where we got the chelada and MĂ©xico Lindo recipes. I’ve never met the author, one Kate Sedgwick, but I like her very much notwithstanding. Not only do her recipes work, she’s got her history and politics straight too.

Okay, I don’t know who Adelita is. After all that reading about the history (or is it non-history?) of the margarita, I don’t have the energy to investigate who Adelita is or might be.

The original recipe measures the ingredients by the ounce; Speedy measured by shot glass. Which is probably why the drink kicked really hard.

    Its ‘Adelita’ name probably derives from a famous Red-Light District strip bar in Tijuana Mexico.
