A tequila-based riff on the classic gin-based Obituary cocktail (a Dry Martini with dashes of absinthe) borrowing elements from the Tequila Martini and Oaxaca Old Fashioned. A couple of drops of saline solution have a dramatic rounding and mellowing effect on this cocktail. Created by yours truly on the Day Of The Dead 2023 at the Clocktower, Rye, Sussex.
