This drink is created by renowned cocktail consultant Ryan Margarian. He is the co founder of Aviation Gin in Portland, a craft gin that comes in a beautiful art deco style bottle. It's a nice change up from a standard Manhattan, though it's a bit more involved.
2 ounces añejo tequila
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/4 ounce Licor 43
Dash of Angostura bitters
Dash of orange bitters
1 fresh cherry
As all of these ingredients are transparent, this is one to stir with ice and then strain. I used mole bitters rather than the angostura, which I thought worked quite well with the Spanish/Mexican vibe of this cocktail. Margarian soaks a fresh cherry in tequila, then wraps it in mole salami. I used thinly sliced chorizo around Amarena cocktail cherries.
A decent summer cocktail with savory aspects.
