Review:

I tried this dry, bittersweet, apertivo cocktail with blanco and then reposado tequilas to discover how much better it is with the more youthful tequila.

History:

Urban myth has it, backed up by reports in mainstream media in 2023, that this cocktail features on a business card printed with only the recipe and a photograph of the lurid orange drink presented to bartenders in Los Angeles, presumably by Johnny himself, accompanied by the request, "Make this if you can."
