1 1⁄2 oz Blanco tequila
3⁄4 oz Aperol
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Orgeat

Shake, strain into a DOF filled with crushed ice. Garnish with Taijin. (see note)


Orgeat can be increased to 3/4 oz if you need more sweetness. Taijin is a powdered mixture of chiles, lime and salt that typically goes on fruit. If you can't find it, Penzeys makes Pico Fruta which is very similar.
