In this week’s episode of A.V. Cocktail Club, Chicago bartender Laura Kelton teaches us how to make the Mexican Firing Squad. Think of it as a next-level margarita—a tequila cocktail that’s a touch fruitier and more bitter. “It’s a great cocktail to show off to your friends,” Kelton says.

Mexican Firing Squad

2 oz. tequila
0.75 oz. lime juice
0.75 oz. grenadine
2 dashes angostura bitters

Pour ingredients into a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour over rocks into a glass, and serve with a lime and cherry garnish.
