1 12 oz Añejo tequila
34 oz Orange liqueur, Clément Créole Shrubb
34 oz Lime juice
12 oz Cynar
2 ds Orange bitters, Angostura orange
Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass half-rimmed with salt. Or I actually prefer Margaritas on the rocks.
A grown-up Margarita. Lingeringly bitter and complex, with peppery flavors from the tequila. Less tequila-forward than a well-made authentic Margarita.
From other users
  • Made with Cointreau, plus 2 dashes Habanero Hellfire bitters. Needs 1 oz lime juice, and 1 dash Hellfire is enough. — ☆☆☆
  • Used C. Spicy and X-choc bitters. 4.5 — ☆☆☆☆
  • I used Casamigos Reposado, not quite anejo, but very good stuff with strong vanilla notes. I think could use a bit more Cynar. Not sure about more lime, citrus seemed balanced to me. — ☆☆☆☆

Tried this as above and liked

Tried this as above and liked it. Creole Shrubb works really well with the tequila and Cynar. But on my second try I made a small modification using Bittermans Xocolatl mole bitters in place of the Angostura orange. For me that made it even better!
