  2. This is the cocktail of choice for my parents' generation at weddings in Mexico--they're the last of the sophisticated adults (think Madmen era). I actually like the Vampiro, but it's an acquired taste and not for everyone.

  3. We actually had delicious Vampiros while vacationing in Zacatecas, unfortunately they didn't turn out quite as well when we made them at home! We'll definitely have to try again! Cheers!
