Less widely known than the margarita, its structure is similarly simple, with three primary ingredients: silver or blanco tequila, pineapple juice, and lime juice.

Matadors are often presented differently, either in a cocktail glass or a champagne flute.

Torero: A torero or toureiro is a bullfighter and the main performer in bullfighting, practised in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Peru, France and various other countries influenced by Spanish culture. In Spanish, the word torero describes any of the performers who actively participate in the bullfight. The main performer is the leader of an entourage and the one who kills the bull, being addressed as maestro and his formal title is matador de toros, but the word "matador" by itself is not used in Spanish. The term torero encompasses all who fight the bull in the ring. The other bullfighters in the entourage are called subalternos and their suits are embroidered in silver as opposed to the matador's more-theatrical gold.
