Cinquenta Cinquenta

1 12 oz Reposado Tequila
1 12 oz Bianco Vermouth
2 ds Celery bitters
1   Peperoncino (as garnish)
Stir; strain; up; garnish.
Frederic Yarm (at link) suggests an orange, lemon, or grapefruit twist as an alternative garnish, and Angostura or orange bitters as alternative bitters if needed. I used a grapefruit twist. This was lovely.

  • Made with fennel bitters. Light and clean. A bit neutral up front but does get interesting on the finish. — ☆☆☆
