Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us

#58: Amigo (aka White Bull)
3/4 oz Coffee Liquer
Combine in a serving glass with ice. Fill with milk or cream, shake.
I went out to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant the other night, and found something interesting on the menu. Seems they do something funky back in the kitchen to the tostadas:
I had some premium Jose Cuervo Añejo tequila leftover from a bottle given as a gift several years ago. I had a feeling that this was going to be a drink I would really like, so I broke out the good stuff.
Using the premium tequila definitely made this a strong, smooth drink. Some cheap rotgut would have diminished the overall experience. The Coffee Liquer mixed well with the tequla, and made this a top tier drink. There was a strong, smoky quality that went well with the other ingredients, and made this milk based drink damn near perfect. It was not too light, not to sweet, and had just the right amount of alcohol. Tasty as all get out.
