AKA:

Tequila Vieux Carré

Comment:

The sweet herbal punch you'll recognise from the classic Vieux Carré but given extra life and fresh vitality by the addition of a shot of tequila (I've halved the usual doses of cognac and bourbon to make way for the tequila).

Plaza Antigua is Spanish for Old Square, while Vieux Carré is in turn French for Old Square hence I first tried using añejo tequila as the sole base spirit, but while good, this drink strayed too far away from what's recognisable as a Vieux Carré.
