Why not unwind with a different kind of margarita? This Old Fashioned riff features all of the flavors of a margarita in a simple yet complex package. The key here is to use a quality tequila, here we leaned on the oaky notes of El Tesoro’s Reposado. The agave adds a light sweetness, while the lime twist adds the aromatics of lime, without adding too much acidity to the drink. The Lime and Sea Salt bitters are what bring this cocktail together and allow it to read decisively as a margarita on the palate while keeping the cocktail dry and delightful.
2 oz El Tesoro Reposado Tequila
.25 oz Light Agave Syrup
2 dashes Remedy Cocktail Company Lime & Sea Salt Bitters
Smoked Maldon Sea Salt
Spent Lime Twist
Stir tequila, agave, and bitters together with ice until chilled and combined. Pour over large cube in a double rocks glass with a salt rim and express lime twist over top of the cocktail before serving.
