Date Night: Chili’s and Tequila Drinks

We usually try to go someplace new for date night because of my New Year’s Resolution.  One of my coworkers treated me to Chinese food dinner a few nights ago at a new Chinese place, so I got to eat at a familiar place for dinner.  Dinner was followed by a trip to the grocer to pick up some additional liquors for the rest of the night’s festivities.  We decided to share 4 tequila based beverages from our tequila cocktail book.

Acid Trip

  • 1/2 oz tequila
  • 1.5 oz Midori
  • 1/2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz rum

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass

Review: Tastes like alcohol, but not much else.  DH says that it needs sprite to make it not hurt to drink.

Arizona Aztec

  • 1 oz gold tequila
  • 1 oz Bacardi Limon
  • 1/2 oz spiced rum
  • 7 oz coke

Stir well in a highball glass

Review: Tastes like watered down coke.  Maybe it would be different if I had a heavier hand with the alcohol or just used less soda.

Warm Blonde

  • Tequila
  • Southern Comfort
  • Amaretto

Layer equal parts in a pony glass or shot glass

Review: Super yummy, warm, and smooth.  Our favorite of the night.

The White Devil

  • 3/4 oz gold tequila
  • 3/4 oz Crown Royal
  • Tabasco (for rim)
  • Margarita salt (for rim)
  • Lime wedge for garnish

Dip the rim of the glass in tabasco and then in the salt.  Pour the alcohol into the glass and garnish with lime.

Review: In the words of DH “No.  God, no.”  This was interesting, but definitely not something to be tried again.  Ick.



  1. I think we had better stick to rum drinks. My dream of a not-so-sweet margarita is failing.

  2. Hey! Two of those drinks had rum in them.
