Terra Verde

1 12 oz Blanco tequila, Cimarron
14 oz Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur (Verde)
12 oz Agave syrup (green peppercorn)
34 oz Apple juice (Granny Smith)
34 oz Lime juice
Instructions
Shake all ingredients with ice for 15 seconds, strain into a chilled coupe or an iced old fashioned glass. Garnish with dehydrated lime wheel.
Notes
Swap out the tequila base with mezcal or a tequila/mezcal split for something smokier. For the Granny Smith apple juice, you can either fresh press it using a juicer (it oxidizes quickly so add some citrus) or muddle 1/2 a diced apple. For the Green Peppercorn Agave Syrup, sous vide 1 cup water, 1 cup agave nectar and 15 green peppercorns for 2 hours at 155 degrees. Strain and bottle. Or bring water to a boil in a stove top pot, add agave nectar and peppercorns, simmer on low for 15 minutes and strain. You could also muddle a few green peppercorns with .5 oz 1:1 agave syrup.

  • A lot of vaguely Mexican ingredients and the apple + spicy combination but nothing that really holds the drink together to make it special. — ☆☆☆
