The Story Behind The El Durazno

The earthy notes in tequila are a good match for citrus, as evidenced by the soaring popularity of Margarita and Paloma cocktails. At A Toda Madre in Glen Ellyn, Ill., Patrick Timmis gives blanco tequila a fruitier foil, combining lime and orange juice with peach liqueur and puree. The result is a pleasantly sweet concoction that’s made even better by a basil-salt rim (though store-bought sea salt will also do the trick).

Ingredients

  • ¾ ounce lime juice
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • ½ ounce orange juice
  • 1 ounce white peach puree
  • ¾ ounce peach liqueur, such as Giffard’s Creme de Peche de Vigne
  • 1 ¼ ounces blanco tequila
  • Salt, for rim

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
  2. Pour into a rocks glass rimmed with salt.
  3. Enjoy!
