About this Cocktail

Full disclosure: Angostura just posted this recipe* on Instagram, I made it and it's SUPREME. Something about the agave nectar and bitters just gives this margarita depth and extra smoothness.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Espolón Reposado Tequila
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz Agave Nectar
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • 1 dash Scrappy's Orange Bitters
Preparation:

Dry shake ingredients (to dissolve agave nectar) then ice shake. Pour into a chili/salt rimmed Old Fashioned glass with one big rock.

*They suggested blanco tequila. I think this one is better with Reposado. Note: a classic margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt.
