Ex-Pat — Bourbon, Bitters, Lime juice, Simple syrup, Mint
For a "hot" drink, try "Under the Volcano." It's really a cool drink (so to speak). For tequila lovers, this is a drink to enjoy; the Cynar adds a hint of bitterness, as does the Yellow Chartreuse, and the lime adds a touch of tartness. The Agave syrup puts a dab of sweetness; and the El Tesoro is the treasure.
What more can I say? Nothing, except that I rated this drink at 4.0; one more of these and I would've rated it 4.5--it's that good. I did make two minor changes, to suit my taste: (1) I made the Cynar a fat "fat" 1/2 oz, and (2) I added only 1/2 oz lime juice. Others may want to follow the recipe as is. Personally, I tend to add less lemon or lime juice than specified, and add more if I think it needs it. And as for the Cynar...well, I just had a hunch, and for me, it paid off...this time.
Used an even 1/2 Cynar and 1/4 Chartreuse alongside Espolon Anejo Tequila. Overall this drink leans sweet - far measurements would push it over the top. I would recommend scant ones if you prefer a drier drink.
This is an excellent drink, and I'm not sure why. Maybe the combo of the yellow chartreuse with the bitter cynar work well together , or this is just one of those that needs all the ingredients. Superb!
