Tequila Tuesday: Purasangre and the 'Bitter Pony'

This "Tequila Tuesday's" I will make a twist on the classic Tequila Old Fashioned. Technically this would be called a "fancy cocktail". A drink becomes a fancy when there is liqueur added to it as a sweetener. This drink gets a little tricky because the 'liqueur' I am going to add is classified also as a bitter, here is the recipe and I will leave historians to speak of history:

Bitter Pony

2 Oz Purasangre Reposado
3/4 Oz Amargo VALLET
Oz simple syrup (optional-adjust

This drink can be built in the glass and stirred, but I build mine in a separate vessel and then strain it over fresh ice.

Garnish with citrus twist expressed over the top of the drink.

Lovely cocktail with fun elegance, real nice to sip on along with before a salad course, or really any time.
