This authentic Mexican cocktail is masculine, sweet, and sophisticated. It's a lighter, springier alternative to the dark whisky cocktails of winter.
It's Conquistador by Milagro Tequila.
Created by Milagro Brand Ambassador Jaime Salas
1 ½ parts Milagro Reposado tequila
½ part Ancho Reyes
½ part crème de cacao
½ part Manzanilla sherry
1 dash Angostura orange bitters
Chill coupe glass with ice and water and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled and diluted. Discard chilling ice from the coupe. Strain ingredients into chilled coupe. Using a vegetable peeler, remove a long piece of orange peel. Express the oil over the cocktail, rub the peel around the rim of the glass, and place atop the cocktail.
