The Federation

2 oz Añejo tequila
12 oz Crème de Cacao, Tempus Fugit
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 rinse Absinthe
1 twst Orange peel
Instructions
Rinse a rocks glass with absinthe. Add ice, tequila, creme de cacao, and bitters; stir. Garnish with an orange twist.
Notes
Per link, this is meant to be a Sazerac variation. Apart from the absinthe rinse, I find it rather different from a Sazerac, but still tasty. Nice use of creme de cacao.

Tasty, but the flavors come

Tasty, but the flavors come off a bit disparate for me. I want to try it with a mezcal rinse plus a dash of absinthe in the mix. Hell, swap the Angostura for Mole and we're approaching Oaxaca OF territory.
