The absinthe gives this cocktail an interesting licorice flavor, while the lemon juice adds tartness to it. Agave nectar balances out all of these flavors and makes for a smooth drink that you can enjoy any time!
This recipe works best with high-quality tequila such as Fortaleza’s because they're made from 100% blue agaves grown in Mexico.
Fortaleza’s handmade, artisan tequilas are produced using time-consuming, old-world techniques that result in maximum flavor and true agave expressions.
From crushing the agave pinas with a giant millstone to extract the juice to open-top fermentation in small, 3,000-liter wooden fermenters, every step of the process is designed to produce the finest possible tequila.
