Hazardous ingredients

Pasteurised egg white is potentially hazardous for those with an allergy, intolerance or medical condition.

Review:

Aged rum provides oaky richness, while tequila adds earthy minerality to this delicious split spirit base and split citrus sour. I've added a splash of agave syrup to lift this cocktail from perhaps being overly on the sour side.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2008 by Sam Ross at Milk & Honey, New York City, USA. The Conquistador was first published in Jim Meehan's 2011 The PDT Cocktail Book.
