Bittersweet Adios (Original Recipe)


Coffee shiskey and agave syrup balance each other in this rocks sipper. There's a lot to love here in one of my secret weapon tequila drinks. A sweet amaro like Don Ciccio & Figili Ambrosia is key to the "all spirits tequila drink" with its honey and citrus peel notes. So is a round tequila like Corralejo, that drinks almost like a cognac or Irish whiskey. Not to be outdone, sweet vermouth and MurLarkey coffee whiskey seal the deal with bitterness. 

All of these bittersweet spirits get their edges shaved off with a touch of Madhava agave syrup. It all goes down like the sweetest medicine with herbal notes throughout, from the tequila and amaro to the sweet agave syrup. Make this one for yourself and see what I mean. Then make it for your friends and they will be so impressed. People who like a Negroni but hate tequila (there have to be a few) will love this one.

  • 1 oz. Corralejo tequila 
  • 1 oz. MurLarkey coffee whiskey 
  • 1/2 oz. Don Ciccio & Figli Ambrosia
  • 1/2 oz. Madhava agave syrup

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube.
