Great for Manhattan lovers, swapping in anejo tequila, and adding triple sec and bitters to evoke the aromas of a fine cigar.
|1 1⁄2||oz||Tequila, Don Julio Añejo|
|3⁄4||oz||Sweet vermouth, Carpano Antica Formula|
|1⁄2||oz||Bianco Vermouth, Dolin|
|1⁄2||oz||Triple sec, Cointreau|
|2||dr||Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole|
Combine all in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into coupe.
I like mine "maduro" with the anejo and more sweet/red vermouth than bianco/dry. But the original source recipe was just named "El Cigarillo" and called for blanco and more dry vermouth than sweet (swap the measurements) for a more martini style. The author (Jack Bettridge) noted that he preferred it more like a Manhattan, and so do I (thus this riff on what was actually published).

- Delicious. Chocolatey. Served with orange twist, straight up, very cold.
- Used about 1 dash each Ango and mole. Would definitely use 1/4oz Cointreau next time, which may significantly improve. Would think the original cocktail was better.
