CHERRY-MOLE MARGARITA

I love constantly experimenting with a basic margarita recipe. This variation incorporates a cherry aperitivo and mole bitters to add a new spin. The sweetness of the cherries and spicy richness of the mole bitters paired well with the tequila and citrus.

For the drink:

-1 1/2 oz tequila (Cazadores Blanco)

-1 1/4 oz cherry aperitivo (Don Ciccio & Figli Cerasum)

-3/4 fresh lime juice

-3/4 fresh lemon juice

-1/2 oz simple syrup

-2 dashes mole bitters

Garnish:

Lime peel


Glassware:

Double rocks glass


Combine the drink ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill three-quarters full with ice. Shake until chilled, 5-10 seconds. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer and garnish.
