The Los Atlos is another creation from the team at The Everleigh, Melbourne. A smoky mezcal & tequila high ball with a spritz.
A tequila & mezcal riff on the classic old fashioned. The picey & chocolatey Xocolatl bitters compliments the smoky mezcal and resposado tequila which is then sweetened with a touch of agave syrup.
Swap out the gin with tequila in a Negroni and you’re left with an Agavoni! Use either a blanco or resposado tequila for an interesting take on the classic, normally gin-based, bitter cocktail.
Aperol and tequila work remarkably well together. The sweetness from the agave compliments the bitter nuances of the grapefruit and the complexity of Aperol. A perfect daytime sipper.
The classic Margarita dates back to the 1930s. Made well and you’ll be coming back for more. Stick with the original recipe for the first time then tweak the measurements to suit your palate; whether it be a little heavier on the tequila or lessening the Cointreau for a a less-sweet, tart Margarita.
