The Matador cocktail has evolved over the years. Bartender William J. Tarling is credited with the first iteration in the late 1930s when the first shipments of tequila arrived in the UK. The second iteration, most commonly enjoyed today, was popularized in the 1970s by tiki legend Trader Vic -- hence the addition of pineapple juice. The Matador has gone through many names and formulations, and our non-alc version is the latest in a long line of remixes. And feel free to skip the bitters if you don’t want even a trace of alcohol. Cheers!
