Blue Agave Mexican Cantina serves an almond-flavored Mexican iced
"It's Amaretto meets tequila," said Sean Greenman, a
bartender at the bar and restaurant, 4280 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale.
The heart of the drink is Reserva del Señor Almendrado,
an almond-flavored tequila available at fine liquor stores. Another
ingredient from Mexico is citrónge, an orange liqueur created
by Patrón, a maker of fine tequilas.
After that, it's a splash of this and a splash of that. "If
people want to skip out on six calories, use Diet Coke. It's OK,"
To impress your compadres, make your own sweet and sour, Greenman
said. Mix equal parts of sugar water and lemon juice.
Serve the drink in a margarita or cocktail glass and cool down
after a hot day.
