La Chona - Tequila Tuesday!


I am going to share a drink created by m
y good friend Joseph Valdovinos (of Playground) that I found on the ArteNOM facebook page that features Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion 1580 (click the link to see my write-up) and Calisaya liquor (click the link to see the quick write up I did). 

So Joe wanted to do a take on a Champs Elysee cocktail swapping the Brandy for Tequila and Chartreuse for Calisaya--NAILED IT! This drink is fantastic. I had already used Calisaya and ArteNOM 1414 in a cocktail (called the Selection-click it if you want), so I knew they would be a great team, but this drink is so much more fresh and vibrant.
To add a even more fun to the drink Joe named it after a song that is seriously playful, about a girl who is the life of the party--just like this drink... so here is:


La Chona.

1 1/2oz. ArteNOM 1580
1/2oz. Calisaya liqueur
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon juice
1/2oz. Simple syrup
3 dashes house Bitters (or 1 dash angostura bitters)
