SHAKEN AND STIRRED A Touch of Evil

'ɼOME on, read my future for me,'' says Hank Quinlan, a corrupt Texas cop to Tanya, a Mexican border town madam, in Orson Welles's ''Touch of Evil.'' Welles plays Quinlan, and Marlene Dietrich is Tanya.

I was sitting at the bar at Sueños, a new Mexican restaurant at 311 West 17th Street, thinking about this recently.

At the bar, Sueños ('ɽreams'' in Spanish) has the fever-dream quality of Welles's 1958 film: shot at night with garish light, too dark and too bright at the same time. You go down a few steps, through a service corridor, and arrive -- the kind of space high-stakes dogfights take place in. The hostess wore a black leather gaucho hat last Wednesday. The bartender and waiters were dressed in drab khaki shirts and trousers, like the Mexican police. You get the impression that if you woke up the next morning and went back to look for the bar, it wouldn't be there. I ordered La Paloma. The cocktail is as basic as a bet: liquor and soda, tequila and Mexican Squirt, which is a grapefruit soda. Squirt is a sweeter, tarter version of citrus sodas like Fresca. (Jarritos is another popular brand.) On the evenings when, I suspect, the staff drinks all the Squirt, Sueños substitutes a blend of grapefruit juice, Grand Marnier and 7Up -- a margarita with a couple of extra mariachis.

Working with Steven Olson, a beverage consultant, Sue Torres, the owner and chef of Sueños, based La Paloma on a cocktail she was served in Mexico at the Don Julio ranch, owned by the tequila family, where they grow their agave.

''They said, 'We're going to make you a real margarita, a Mexican margarita,' '' Ms. Torres recalled. It was Squirt, tequila and lime.

La Paloma, which translates as ''the dove,'' and also, similarly, as a meek or a mild person, is an aptly named cocktail. It acts like it's never held a gun before, and then it blows the tin can into the air. Perversely, it tastes better with grapefruit soda than grapefruit juice.

Sueños also serves a Cosmolito -- a Mexican cosmopolitan. It brought back to mind the black-haired Marlene Dietrich as Tanya in ''Touch of Evil'' and a framed letter hanging in Ms. Dietrich's apartment on Park Avenue, which I had the opportunity to view when Sotheby's sold its contents.

Dietrich reacted with fire to Welles's idea that she play the madam in a Mexican brothel, and demanded an explanation for the offer.

''Haven't you ever heard of type-casting?'' he wrote back.

1 1/2 ounces Herradura Hacienda del Cristero Blanco tequila

3/4 ounce fresh lime juice (half a lime)

4 ounces Mexican Squirt soda (or 1 ounce freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and 3 ounces 7Up)

1. Pour tequila over ice in a tall highball or Collins glass.

2. Add lime juice. Add Squirt or substitute. Stir and garnish with a slice of lime.
