Comments

Do you mean 1 teaspoon of lemon juice + 1 teaspoon of grated zest, or simply 1 teaspoon of grated zest? I can change as necessary.

Thanks,

The vanilla/caramel taste can be of the Anejo is offputting to some in this recipe. A nice silver or Reposado works well. I also add .25oz lemon juice and use fruit forward bitters.
