I discovered The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu while browsing The Inn at Little Washington gift store, forever associating the book with the experience.
The Language of Food isn't part of Tequila Mockingbird; thus, adherence to the stated Reading, Writing, Drinking, Writing protocol is not required.
The book had a drink recipe I wanted to try. So I did. And here it is.
- 1 1/4 oz fresh squeezed key lime juice
- 1/2 tsp hot sauce
- 1/2 tsp teaspsoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp chamoy (fruity chili sauce)
- 1/2 teaspoon Maggi
- 1 Negra Modelo or Pacifico
- Ice cubes in a tall glass
- Mexican chili lime powder (like Tajín) for the glass rim
Rub a lime around the rim of a tall chilled glass and then dip the rim in chili lime powder. In a small jar or shaker, mix the rest of the ingredients, add to the glass with ice, and top with beer.
Highly Pretentious Tasting Notes and Impressions:
- A Bloody Mary of the beer variety.
- Not bad but not my pint of beer.
