I Created this drink for a friend.
I was given a Reposado Tequila in which one of the tasting notes was pear so I wanted to try and bring that out. This drink would be served to a very broad spectrum of guests so I wanted to create a drink that would appeal to the Tequila hesitant and also those whom love it.
It was originally served as 1oz but I prefer it at 1.5oz.
1.5oz Reposado Tequila
1oz Pear puree
1oz Fresh lime juice
.5oz Szechwan pepper water
Add all ingredients, shake well, double strain over ice.
Garnish with tequila soaked pear slice.
When making the Szechwan water I toasted the pepper corns before adding them to water to bring the flavour out more.
