-1 1/2 oz añejo tequila (ArteNOM Seleccion de 1146)
-1/2 oz Borsci (You can substitute 1/4 oz crème de cacao and 1/4 oz coffee liqueur)

Combine 4 oz blood orange juice and 1/4 tsp agar agar in a shallow container. Use an immersion blender to blend. Ensure the blade is not totally submerged to incorporate air.
Combine all the cocktail ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake for ten seconds. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer into your glass. Spoon the foam on top. Garnish.
