How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass.


Lemon zest twist


This spirituous bitter-sweet aperitif is reminiscent of a White Negroni, but based on tequila rather than gin.


Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Jason Simplot at Rumba, Seattle, USA. Jason’s original spec called for equal parts El Tesoro Platinum, Suze and Carpano Bianco.

Jason says, “Essentially a white Rosita, created for a guest who wanted a tequila cocktail on the bitter side. Slightly spicy, kinda sweet and gentian heavy. I thought I named this after a Modern Life Is War song, one of my favorite punk bands, but upon a little research they never titled a song with the aforementioned phrase. Which is too bad. It's fitting for not only their casse-toi brand of aggressive punk but also for this slightly aggressive and feisty cocktail."
