Aguila Azteca

1 12 oz Tequila, Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver
1 oz Honeydew melon juice
14 oz Ginger liqueur, Canton
14 oz Crème de Violette, Rothman & Winter
Shake, strain, chilled coupe.
The PDT Cocktail Book does not specify whether the Cuervo blanco or reposado is called for but Payman Bahmani of PDT recommends the blanco. Named for the elite eagle warriors of the Aztec army. Melon-ginger-violet is a surprisingly good flavor combo.
