1 oz Blanco tequila (*)
1 oz Licor 43
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1⁄2 oz Egg white (whisked)
1 dr Bitters (** full dropper)
1 twst Lime peel

Rinse a chilled coupe with mezcal and discard excess. In an empty shaker, add liquors, juices, syrup and bitters and egg white and dry shake ~30 seconds. Add ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into the coupe and garnish with a lime peel


* I used Casamigos Blanco, but any silver tequila that's softer with greener and minty-er notes will work well.
** I used Five Watt Coriander Bitters


Named after General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín, the victorious leader of the Mexican army during their unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. I wanted something richer and more dynamic in character and profile than the "traditional" margaritas on Cinco de Mayo. Killer citrus, vanilla and herbal notes that are put in balance by the slight smoke of the mezcal and creaminess of the egg

  • Almost too easy drinking. When I make again, I'll probably try without the simple, as it's pretty sweet, and I have to imagine it would stand fine on it's own without it — ★★★★★
