About this Cocktail

The brief was a tequila based Manhattan style drink.

I decided to go down a cleaner route and so chose blanco over a repo. Looking for a perfect style of balance I chose Suze for its complex gentian flavouring and lovely yellow colouring in place of a sweet Italian vermouth. The grapefruit notes in the bitters work well with both the tequila and the Suze.

Oh and I recently went for drinks at Jason Atherton's City Social in London (strongly recommended) where the entire bar list is pun based hence tonight's namings...

  • 60ml Ocho blanco tequila
