You might say rum.
But if you said tequila, you’re even better at this than we thought.
Either way, today we’re making a drink called Aguila de Desierto. It comes from Brooklyn’s Glady’s and it translates into “desert eagle,” which sure sounds cool.
And considering it’s made with reposado tequila, pineapple, banana liqueur and a miraculous invention called ice, it probably is.
Make one. Drink one. Hang on to the last vestiges of summer.

1 3/4 oz Blue Nectar Reposado Extra Blend Tequila
3/4 oz banana liqueur
