Happy Hour Legendario!

By: Joe Thompson

We love anything that considers itself "Legendary": drag queens, dance divas, and now cocktails.


I was cruising the Out Summer Entertaining guide—you know, to research what kind of good times I'm going to have at my Saturday barbecue— and found a recipe for the Margarita Legendario!

"Legendario?" Seriously? Yes. But before making any jokes I decided to mix up a batch and taste test it out. (I'm a generous and fair kind of guy like that, ya see.)

¡Ay Dios Mio! Seriously? (Again, please...) SERIOUSLY? This is one tasty beverage. So tasty that I (much as I hate to admit it) think the "Lengendario" moniker is quite fitting.

So check it out (along with another totally gratuitous hunky Latin boy shot). As they say at my local Mexican restaurant when they deliver my meal, "Enhoy..."
