Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin cocktail with blanco tequila, amaretto, lemon juice, lime juice, agave syrup

The Macaulay Culkin is a delicious drink with a great name – how could we resist? It’s the brilliant creation of David Velasco, beverage manager at The Lanes in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Velasco calls amaretto a “versatile ingredient with a lot of missed potential,” and notes how well it combines with chocolate and spice flavors.

Velasco’s original recipe called for twice the amount of agave syrup as shown here; at first sip, we found it to be quite sweet. Amaretto already brings a lot of sweetness, and agave is sweeter than sugar – cutting the amount in half allows the tequila and citrus to shine through.
