Tequila Gimlet

Comment:

Tequila and lime are divine, and this riff on the usually gin-based original Gimlet is as good, although very different with the earthiness of the tequila adding an extra dimension which more than compensates for the lack of gin's botanical complexity. As for the name, the second ingredient was originally mezcal de pechuga!
