Dos Besitos (Death & Co. Recipe)


Sometimes tequila--and tequila recipes from speakeasy bars--are a little inaccessible for the average cocktail drinker. The trend seems to be to load up on flavors or to combine things in new and sometimes off-putting ways to get us to think differently about recipes and to appreciate new experiences.

This drink is designed to please the crowd. It tastes like a vacation, and as such brings few challenges to the bartender or drinker. And you need cocktials like this on menus. You don't want anyone feeling left out, and they won't. Not with "besitos" (little kisses) in your glass. 

  • 1 oz. reposado tequila (El Jimador reposado used)
  • 1 oz. blanco tequila (Sauza 100% blue agave blanco used)
    3/4 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/4 oz. agave syrup (Madhava used)
  • 1 tsp grenadine

Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a coupe.
