The Double Eagle is proud to have served our Margarita Recipe for over 30 years!
In the Southwest, we take our Margarita seriously! We don’t know who actually ‘invented’ putting lime juice in tequila but bless him! (or her!) We acknowledge that the simple act of combining of tequila and lime juice was the original Margarita recipe. So, when people talk about the ‘original recipe’ , this is what they usually mean: A fire-y shot of burning liquor only lightly tempered by the tart lime juice. We call it the Traditional Margarita!
But, even tequila aficionados must acknowledge that when presented with an ‘original recipe’ Margarita, most people go “yeech”! Like most things in Life, practice makes perfect. So, too, does taking up Life’s dare and learning to drink tequila! Almost the equal of drinking Scotch as a learned behavior, drinking tequila can offer the challenges and rewards of many varieties.
Over the years, we have developed our own recipe which ‘soothes the savage beast’ and calms that burning liquid into a smooth cocktail which has been the favorite in our Bar for over 30 years.
Know Your Tequilas
Made from the fermented juices of the blue agave plant – related to the lily and amaryllis – the only one of 136 species of agave allowed for use in tequila. Agave plants are grown in the Lowlands and Highlands of Mexico. Lowland tequilas are deeper and mellower than Highlands. Highlands are fruity and aromatic.
51% Blue Agave – clear, very spicy, never aged, goes straight to the bottle from distillation
Means “rested”, aged in oak barrels usually 6 months, takes on the flavor of the barrels in which it is aged – some are new oak, some are used bourbon barrels, some are used tequila barrels, these factors affect the taste characteristics and is usually described on the bottle label
Means “aged”, aged 1 to 5 years in oak barrels holding no more than 600 gallons, longer ageing gives a darker, richer color
Made from Agave plants other than the Blue Agave. Usually more peppery than Blue Agave Tequila
The Double Eagle carries some 30 different tequilas. We have chosen these from the hundreds of brands which have appeared and disappeared over the years. We believe these are the ‘winners’ with other brands either tasting the same as the brands we have or they bring nothing new and different to the table.
