Los Altos Negros

2 oz Blanco tequila
12 oz Amaro Abano, Luxardo
12 oz Zucca
12 oz Aperol
23 oz Lime juice
Shake, strain, rocks or up. Optional salt rim
I haven't tried the salt rim yet, but I think it's a good idea.
Los Altos (the highlands) is a tequila-producing region of Mexico. Modeled after the Black Manhattan, which substitutes an amaro for a modifier.
From other users
  • The pepper from the Abano and the spice from the Zucca complements the tequila. The Aperol adds the missing orange notes. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Made it with amaro lucano — ☆☆☆☆
  • I would use full 1 oz of lime next time. amaros end up a bit muddled - might experiment with using abano and aperol with rhubarb bitters in place of the Rabarbaro. Or orange bitters in place of aperol. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Zucca is a bit off, but eliminating it made it too bright. Replace with a different dark bitter - Averna or Balzam? — ☆☆☆
