  • Made this w/ Anejo - had a vanilla flavor to it. Changed this to reposado, added .25oz lemon juice and swapped in orange bitters - 5 stars! — ★★★★★

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.



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.
