Since it’s well in to Fall already I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve begun covering cocktails that have a decidedly less summery flavor profile. I found this one to be amazing, although nothing like the French 75, I do have a weak spot for anything that has “french” or “france” in the title, although the base spirit here is Tequila. Regardless. Rather as a fun alternative to a Manhattan, here’s a little something you should try out, if not for your special day, then maybe just at home over the weekend by the fire.
The French Intervention
2 oz. El Espolòn Tequila Blanco
1/2 oz. Cynar
1/2 oz. St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Wide lemon twist for garnish
