1 1⁄2 oz Añejo tequila (Jose Cuervo Black)
1⁄2 oz Licor 43
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1 sli Lime

Shake with ice; pour into a lowball glass with crushed ice and add a lime wheel


I made this originally with Jose Cuervo Black, but now that it's discontinued an oaky añejo will work as a substitute.

This is sublime...one of the better margarita's I've had in some time. The Licor 43 brings out the best of all the ingredients.
