I made a batch of "tortilla tequila" that is mindblowingly good, and tonight I made my first drink with it. It's quite a dry drink, the lime (citrus) and the lime (chemical) interacting in a really amazing way. I could drink thirty of these. Extra points to anyone who gets the name, a reference to the need for the slightly round, slightly spicy Fundador:
1 sugar cube
3 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl bitters
1 oz Fundador Brandy de Jerez
1 oz Chinaco añejo tequila
1 oz tortilla tequila
Dash the bitters onto the sugar cube and muddle until dissolved. Add the spirits and cracked ice; stir until combined. Squeeze a Ti Punch slice of lime over the top; stick the slice into the drink.
