Inspiration: The flavors evoke good memories and a variant of a classic Alexander and are traditional in Mexican cuisine. It is a tribute to my grandfather on my father's side, Don Onofre, a simple man that enjoyed coffee and tequila, who accompanied his meals with fresh cheese. When I think of a tequila cocktail I always think of the public for whom it is meant, if it will be to the liking of the diner, so I associate to the flavors that tequila drinkers enjoy to create the perfect cocktail for each patron, inspired by the memory and transmitting a little of myself with each drink.
