    Matador Tequila Cocktail

    This delicious tequila variation on the Manhattan comes not from Spain or Mexico but from the Café Royal Cocktail Book, written by British bartender William J. Tarling, a one-time president of the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild, and published in London in 1937 by the guild. In the 1920s and ’30s, bullfighting was all the rage, its popularity no doubt encouraged by the publication of Ernest Hemingway’s writings, notably his 1926 novel, The Sun Also Rises, and his 1932 bullfighting treatise, Death in the Afternoon.
