If you want a little spice in your life, then The Wolf is where its at. This drink is the perfect cocktail to sip on no matter what the occasion is as it’s got a perfect balance of sweet, sour and spiciness. Any great drink starts with a premium spirit, which would categorize Lunazul Tequila to the T. In fact since making this drink I have noticed some of the trendiest restaurants in all of Chicagoland that have been pouring out this tasty Agave Blanco Tequila.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to appreciate food and beverages in it’s natural form. Whether it’s a plain green bean, a fresh raspberry or even a sip of this Lunazul Tequila, you’ll immediately notice its refreshing citrusy flavor that is just so good by itself over ice. I must be getting older :-). When your palette changes over time it is being refined and your brain also kicks in to help you appreciate the finer things.
Making this drink is incredibly easy as it only involves 5 ingredients. If you don’t have any simple syrup on hand, it’s as easy as boiling together equal parts sugar and water and then chilling it until it’s cold Yup, it’s that simple! Once it’s cool pour it into a rocks glass along with a few slices of jalapeños. If you want this drink spicy then keep the seeds intact. if you want it to be mildly spicy then simply remove the seeds before muddling it until it becomes broken down and smooth.
When it’s at this point, simply pour in the Lunazul Tequila, orange juice, fresh lime juice and ice before stirring it with a spoon. Garnish the drink with a few extra slices of jalapeños and if you want an orange wheel. Now sip and enjoy!!
If I were going to pair this up with food I would look to do so with a salty smoked pork shoulder or even a tropical mahi mahi dish. Give’em a try and be sure to follow my friends over at Lunazul at the links below:
