The Frontera Margarita Man

martini man

Frontera Bar & Grill serves a wide range of premium and super premium 100% blue agave tequila. This here is the official Frontera Margarita Man, who has served thousands of margaritas during his tenure at the bar.

The Speedy Gonzalez is a cocktail with Red Bull, watermelon liquor and Sauza 100% pure blue agave tequila. It’s under the Hornitos label and packs a real punch. The Red Bull (caffeine and Taurine) gives a slightly stimulating aspect to offset the CNS depressant qualities of the Sauza Hornitos tequila.

Watch the Speedy Gonzolez being made live! You can’t taste the alcohol inside, and the stimulants make you feel like you’re not feeling the alcohol too, but you are – a drink to watch out for. :)

patron xo cafe

The Patron Spirits Company also makes coffee liqueur, which I didn’t know until I went to Frontera. Dubbed the Patron XO Cafe, it’s like Kahlua, except this coffee liqueur weighs in at a whopping 40% alcohol! It can be sipped neat and taste a hell of a lot better than Kahlua.

stealth bomber

Frontera Bar & Grill also makes a mean B-52 with Patron XO Cafe instead of Kahlua. This doubles the alcohol content so I think it should be dubbed the B2 Spirit “Stealth Bomber” instead. It’s a shooter with B-52 “Stratofortress” ingredients with the Kahlua substituted with the premium Patron XO Cafe.

gran patron

The tequila based drinks at Frontera is sweetened with agave syrup instead of sugar syrup so the taste of agave is preserved. It’s really a good concept, and a great place for tequila based cocktails. The unopened Gran Patron Platinum at the front costs RM 1,400 per bottle. Larry didn’t let me taste it though. ;) It’s understandable – he hasn’t had the chance to sample it himself.

generations tequila

Tequila is underrated in Malaysia due to the non-premium brands flooding the market but tasting the premium and super premium brands has given me much respect for this drink from Mexico.

  1. Dude, you found Patron! Patron Silver is my #1 choice for premium Tequila, it’s smooth, not for shooter ( like cheap Jose or Souza) but slow savoury sips. Chilled seedless watermelon spiked with patron silver is the way to go on a hot summer afternoon.
    I’ll bring a few bottle of Patron on my next trip home.. including a Single barrel JD.

  2. Do they have Mojito? This Cuban cocktail is a rage all over for it strong lime and chopped mint leaves in it. Once you drank it you want to Salsa on the dance floor.

  3. Does it have Happy Hour? Agave syrup is popular all over in foods also. I use it for ice tea too.
    On your youtube was that Asian music in the background? This trip been planing is going to be a long trip. Hong Kong, Beijing Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and finally Taiwan. Been planing it for sometime.

  4. e: Indeed! I remember you giving me sample bottles of it when I was in Kuching, posted about it too. Very nice stuff.
    Hmm…watermelon spiked with Patron sounds great.
    Cheers buddy, will be eagerly awaiting your return. I’m eyeing the Single Barrel JD. :)
    Gallivanter: Jaya One has a lot of pubs and even a club! Most eating outlets there serves alcohol to boot, especially the back block. Check it out, I found the place very nice and relaxing. :)
    kennysia: Yeah, I remembered the stuff. Very, very nice, especially the aged Patron tequila. :)
    xin: You don’t drink? There’s good tex-mex food in Frontera as well, it’s operated by a friend of mine. I’ll do a food review next. :)
    Erica: I’m not sure but this place is a tex-mex joint. Frontera means “border”. :)
    Keng: Hmm…Mojito eh? Pronounced as “mo-hi-to”? I’ve heard of it, but don’t remember trying it. Maybe I did, but I forgot, which I’m prone to do on alcohol. ;)
    Vickie: Agave syrup tastes better in premium tequila cocktails. It doesn’t ruin the drink and adds to the agave taste. :)
    The BGM in the YouTube video is Mexican gangsta rap actually. :)
    May: Nope, I’m a Rooster. Born in 1981. I’m an Aries though, probably that’s why I’m an extrovert. :)
