Cocktail of the Week: Tequila Time Machine

Can we make "tastes like vacation" an official flavor profile? Because the Tequila Time Machine encapsulates exactly that. From the taste of your favorite tequila to the tropical essences of blood orange and prickly pear, this drink will transport you to a Mexican beach faster than you can say "yum!"


  • 3 oz. Tequila
  • 0.75 oz. Prickly Pear Syrup
  • 0.5 oz. Lime Juice
  • 0.75 oz. Saffron Syrup
  • 1 oz. Blood Orange Juice


  1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Top with ice and shake until chilled.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lime.
