From the bartender’s corner – Baja Gold

This is one more drink from the book of cocktails and trivia that Natasha gifted me. This is Tequila, mango juice, Agave nectar and lime. The original recipe called for pineapple juice but I am not a big fan of pineapple juice. Somehow, that particular acid does not sit very well in my mouth.

The trivia mentioned for this drink is interesting.

“In 1669, The German Alchemist Hennig Brand, after noting that gold and urine were similar in color, developed the belief that he could distill the precious metal from it. So, he started collecting urine, mostly from his wife and her friends.

After boiling over 1,500 gallons of it, he found no gold. Instead, he discovered phosphorous!”
