Review:

When I first tried this bittersweet tequila-laced cocktail, I intended to add a dash of orange bitters but mistakenly used Peychaud's, and I found I liked the extra layer of anis freshness it adds. Both styles of bitters work well, but the orange oils from the garnish are crucial.

Variant:

Also works when served straight-up in a coupe.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Dan Zollman, Boston, MA, USA. Recipe courtesy of Kindred Cocktails.
