Diablo Margarita found at Red Lulu Cocina & Tequila Bar
128 Washington Street, Norwalk
INGREDIENTS: Espalon Reposado Tequila, Triple Sec, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, blood orange puree, Serrano Chili, fresh strawberries, and pineapples, red sugar and black pepper garnish
The Red Lulu is an interesting, sexy, mysterious, and devilish sort of place. The kind of joint where there are candles on the staircase and ravens decorating the chandelier. Intensely awesome, in other words. In fitting with the interior, this Diablo Margarita seduces with its good looks and sweet strawberry initial flavor, before suddenly surprising your taste buds with an intense whallop of top shelf tequila and raw jalapeno. If a cocktail could laugh at you and dare you to drink more, this one would do it. It is sleek, smooth, and just the right amount of naughty. Enjoy at your own risk.
