To test the potency of four variations of the quintessential summer cocktail, the writer drank six ounces of each on consecutive nights. Then he breathalyzed.

BLOCKHEADS
Regular shaken margarita, $5, 10 oz.
Blew a .000

No tequila taste; if there was any alcohol at all, it was metabolized before the breath test.


DOS CAMINOS
El Camino, $11, 6 oz.
Blew a .014

A very well-structured cocktail, not dominated by the tequila taste. It produced a pleasant, light buzz.


CABRITO
The Margarita, $10, 10 1/4 oz.
Blew a .019

A tasty basic margarita, but given its strong tequila aftertaste, this registered surprisingly average on the AlcoMate Breathalyzer.


ROSA MEXICANO
La Tradicional, $11, 10 oz.
Blew a .033

A delicious, balanced beverage. The best deal of the batch both in terms of taste and buzz factor.
