Alta California (Death & Co. Recipe)


Alta--a Spanish vision of the New World--ceases to exist except in this golden cup. Even after Spanish colonization ended in California, the indigenous control of the territory remained and continued to produce distilled spirits made from the agave plant. Cinnamon and herbs make up the rounded flavor profile of this stirred drink. It is both light and rich, herbaceous and balanced. If you are a fan of Tequila Martinis, you will fall for this one's charms.

  • 2 oz. blanco tequila (El Jimador used)
  • 3/4 oz. Dolin Blanc vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. yellow Chartreuse (Dolin Genepy used)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon bark syrup (rich simple plus a splash of MurLarkey cinnamon whiskey used)

Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a coup with no garnish.
