Firing Squad (Baker)

  • Base Spirit Tequila
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Refreshing
  • Served On the Rocks

Charles H. Baker found this drink (originally called “Mexican Firing Squad”) at the La Cucaracha Bar in Mexico City during his travels in the 1930s.  If you’re craving tequila, but want something other than a Margarita, then this is an easy fix.
