A short drink is composed mainly of spirits and served without ice. A long drink is served in a tall glass with soda, beer or sparkling wine. Sean Kenyon likes making short drinks long and long ones short. He calls it the “Willy Wonka effect.” Here, he shrinks the El Diablo by using ginger liqueur in place of the beer and lemon bitters for the lime juice. Slideshow: More Tequila Cocktails
