“The El Beso de Luz” Margarita - Perfect Valentines Day Cocktail

Tequila.  This is the most versatile Valentine’s Day drink.  Tequila?  Yes, tequila.

Not only is tequila an aphrodisiac, but Santana (yes, the Santana of Woodstock and Black Magic Woman) likened his first warm taste of El Beso de Luz to the first time one falls in love. In fact, he was so moved by it that he gave the cocktail its name, a tribute to his wife Cindy.  Isn't that a sweet love story?

Feeling bitter? We think the citrus and vanilla notes, complimented by the knowledge that you’re about to indulge in one of Mexico’s finest exports will make that sour mood hard to maintain. Very smooth indeed. 

Need a little something to relax, Valentine? Unlike other forms of alcohol, tequila – though not technically a stimulant – has been known to loosen one up a bit. 

As a fan of Carlos Santana and a lover of good tequila, I'm pleased to share with you the recipe he created.  Enjoy. 

“The El Beso de Luz” Margarita
(the kiss of light – Named by Santana)

½ oz Licor 43
1 oz lime juice
¼ orange squeeze drop
