Tequila Matador

Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide (1972)

Similar to the Café Royal Matador, Trader Vic’s Tequila Matador appears in the 1972 edition of Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide as a combination of tequila, pineapple juice and lime shaken with shaved ice and served up. While the two version could not be more different, both have been embraced by bartenders in equal measure.

  • 1 ounce tequila

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with shaved ice.
