Any guesses as what TGV stands for? Each letter stands for one of the three most popular liqueurs the world over – Tequila, Gin, and Vodka. This cocktail, despite being a classic of classics, is subjected to probably the most variations of any cocktail, because every bartender and amateur mixologist likes to add his favourite flavours to the blend of these three liqueurs. The most frequent variation involved adding Blue Curacao to the mix to lighten the potent flavours of this liqueur-fuelled drink.

This classic combo has thus given birth to many a modern cocktail, but a classic is a classic, and there are still many who would rather enjoy this strong drink exactly as it is meant to be, with just the three ingredients that make up its name. With Tequila, Vodka, and Gin all combined into a single cocktail, this drink should come with its own caution sign!

Ideally served in the form of shots, it is a great pick me up, and is called TGV for one more reason – it is compared to the TGV, a French high speed train, because it’ll have you going at top speed in no time. With the proper technique, mixing this drink is effortless and it can be whipped up anytime, anywhere, with extremely easily available ingredients.

Here is a recipe for this deadly strong cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 60 ml Gin
  • 60 ml Tequila
  • 60 ml Vodka
  • Dash of Blue Curacao

Preparation

  1. In a cocktail shaker, add ice
  2. Add equal amounts of the Tequila, Vodka and Gin to the cocktail shaker
  3. Shake briskly until condensation appears on the outside of the shaker
  4. Pour into a highball glass without ice
  5. Add the dash of Blue Curacao last to give the mixture a nice bluish green colour

Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice
  • Highball glass
