About this Cocktail

An original. Combining my three current love affairs in one glass: Sherry (oh Sherry), Gran Classico, and the fantastic Tequila Cabeza. Rich, nutty and earthy, with notes of sandalwood and mineraly smoke rounding it out. A little Demerera and salt to open it up, and orange bitters to clean and bind the flavors.

  • 1.75oz Tequila Cabeza
  • .88oz Lustau Amontillado
  • .33oz Gran Classico
  • .25 Demerera 1:1 sugar
  • 1 drop Kosher Salt
  • 2 dash Regan's Orange bitters
  • Vida del Maguey for rinse

Rinse a coupe with Vida del Maguey then dump. Combine rest of ingredients and stir, then strain into coupe. Orange Peel garnish.
