Pompous Mexican recipe
Scan me to take me with you
The Pompous Mexican is a cocktail made from Corona beer, Tanqueray gin and lemon juice (ReaLemon brand is recommended). It's popular in New York Tri-State Area & San Francisco. The ingredients complement each other as the beer smooths out the gin, and the gin/lemon de-fizzes the beer.
This drink was created by Jon C. Hodgson in the summer of 2003. It was a hot summer, and he was alternating between icy Coronas and refreshing Gin & Tonics. One day he couldn't decide which one to have, so he simply combined the two (mostly... admittedly he left out the tonic altogether).
1. Take a sip (or pour out) a small amount of the Corona, down to where the neck widens, creating room for the other ingredients.
2. Carefully pour the Tanqueray & lemon juice into the bottle of Corona.
3. Cap the bottle tightly with your thumb, invert until the ingredients mix fully.
4. Drink and enjoy.
* The Corona should be cold (from a refrigerator).
* While not required, the lemon juice should be cold (from a refrigerator) and the Tanqueray should be chilled (in a freezer).
* "More" is not "better" - Using more than a half shot of gin or lemon will ruin the flavor.
* Gins vary widely in flavor. While other gins can be used, the original gin used by the creator is Tanqueray.
* Don't use lime as a substitute for lemon.
