Again, I'm finding more than one drink by the name Sombrero. The one in the New York Bartender's Guide is basically a White Russian without the vodka. I might drink that one when I'm really drunk, but I'm still trying to experiment with Spanish vermouth.

This time I'm using Lacuesta's sweet limited edition bottle. This is more mild than Italian vermouths, and far less bitter than Antica Formula. It's really a lot like a Marsala wine with a little bit of herbs to give it zing.

I used Sauza gold tequila because it has more caramel flavors and less pepper and agave taste of the blanco. It was a good move.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gold tequila
  • 3/4 oz. sweet vermouth (Lacuesta limited edition used)
  • 3/4 oz. dry vermouth (Lacuesta blanco used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
