Tequila Tuesday #12: Mexico Rose Cocktail

Today is Tequila Tuesday and today we will make a tasty beverage called a Mexico Rose Cocktail with Purasangre Reposado (I wrote it up in TT #10, click to read.).

There is not a lot said or known about the Mexico Rose Cocktail except the recipe. It is almost exactly the same as an El Diablo--except the El Diablo has Ginger Beer in it. I like the Mexico Rose, it is tangy and fresh, real easy to drink and pretty to look at. Some recipes call for Grenadine instead of (or along with????) the Creme de Cassis. Thought they are both good, the 1 made with Cassis is much more interesting.

The recipe is super simple (you'll have it memorized before even finish reading it.).
 
Mexico Rose Cocktail

1 1/2 Oz Purasangre Reposado
1/2 Oz Creme de Cassis
1/2 Oz Lime Juice


Shake and strain into a chilled glass.
It doesn't call for a garnish and I don't think it needs one.

Sometime the best gift is a single solitary rose . . .
