The Story Behind The Tequila And Chill

Tequila and white chocolate are delicious separately, of course; but put them together, and the combination is stunning. I use añejo tequila here with white chocolate syrup, and they work together wonderfully. Lillet Blanc keeps things from getting too sweet, as do a few dashes of Peychaud’s.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces añejo tequila, such as Tequila Arette Añejo
  • 1 ounce Lillet Blanc
  • ½ ounce Monin White Chocolate syrup
  • 4 to 5 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

Directions

  1. Combine tequila, Lillet, and Monin syrup in a mixing glass with ice.
  2. Stir to chill and combine.
  3. Fine strain into a coupe glass over an ice cube.
  4. Dash bitters on the top of cocktail.
