Tips and Variations
If you've ever made a Tequila Sunrise, you'll be familiar with the visual impact that beetroot juice can have. When it's added to a slightly lighter liquid, it gives the beverage a vibrant, bloody appearance.
Beetroot juice adds not just color, but also a subtle sweetness and a unique earthy flavor that pairs exceptionally well with tequila. If you'd like a less intense drink, you could make a Tequila Sunrise with crushed ice and substitute beet juice for grenadine.
Remember that the juices and agave syrup can be premixed for convenience. However, you should add the tequila just before serving, due to the perishable nature of the juice.
The Potion de Muerto is a wonderfully spooky and delicious addition to your Halloween celebration! Enjoy it responsibly.
