This lightly sweet, ginger, lime and tequila cocktail gets it’s pretty color solely from a larger then typical amount of bitters. I loved the flavor of this cocktail. It is best to use blanco tequila for this one.
The original recipe for this drink calls for ginger syrup, but we had some Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, so I used that in place of the ginger syrup. I never mind a little extra booze in my cocktails. 🙂
The combo of tequila, lime and ginger is delicious and I loved the extra depth of flavor from the bitters. I would make this one again.
