Created in August 2015 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England. Why Spanish eyes? Tequila distillers speak Spanish, Byrrh is made close to the Spanish boarder, pacharan is very Spanish, as are the best oranges. Plus my missus is half Spanish so has brown eyes and this drink is brownish.
Adapted from George Winter’s 1884 How To Mix Drinks–Bar-Keeper’s Handbook. His original recipe calls for “Peruvian bitters” - we found 3 dashes of Peruvian Cortesano Amargo Bitters Aromatic work well if you have them, alternatively use a dash less of Angostura aromatic bitters.
