“The Daily Drink” brings you a must-try libation from our booze columnist Zach Geballe.
When it comes to iconic drinks to have outside, few can compare to the margarita. That timeless combination of tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, and salt just screams “stop pretending you’re gonna get your column finished today, we both know you’re having three more and then taking a ‘nap’ at 5 pm.” Whoops, that got a little personal. Anyhow, the version I had at Barrio mixed things up a bit by using an Orange Muscat (a dessert wine from California with a distinctly orange flavor) and agave nectar, but it’s still the drink that most tastes like sunshine (and ignoring work!) to me.
Zach Geballe does a lot of drinking. When he’s not working at The Dahlia Lounge or for his business Vine Trainings, he’s studying for the Court of Master Sommeliers Exam. His weekly column here at Seattle Weekly, The Bar Code, endeavors to inspire, educate and sometimes poke fun at all things beer, wine and spirits related.
