Review:

Tequila charged, delicately bittersweet undertones sit with rich almond syrup.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2019 by Tiffany Kirk at Miss Carousel bar in Houston, USA. Perhaps named after the dead man's switch designed to activate or deactivate if a human operator becomes incapacitated due to loss of consciousness or being physically removed from control. Also known as a dead man's handle, such switches were originally used on trains, other vehicles and machines, but the term is now used to describe other fail-safe devices or computer software.
