Mexico City

This is a fun variation on a Manhattan, with tequila in place of the whiskey. Use a high-quality tequila.

  • 2 oz tequila reposado or añejo
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 dashes mole bitters
  • garnish: orange twist, brandied cherry

Stir tequila, vermouth, and bitters with plenty of ice. Strain into a coupe glass.

Express the oils from an orange twist over the drink, then add it and the cherry into the glass.
