History

A cocktail to commemorate the battle between France and Mexico, which started as a result of a French baker's establishment being destroyed during the civil war prior. Rock Patron Reposed tequila because of it's elevated alcohol content; Dolin Rouge because of it's orange and vanilla aromas, and French heritage; Acacia Honey to represent the aguamiel, and to elevate the honey notes in the tequila; Lemon juice to add acidity and to tie all of the flavours together; Chocolate bitters as an ode to that French baker; Arnica Flower-Wormwood tincture for length on the finish.
