Conquistador

Conquistador cocktail with rum, blanco tequila, simple syrup, lemon juice, lime juice, orange bitters, and egg white

Veteran barman Sam Ross says he gave this drink its name because it beats back the ferocity of tequila like a conqueror. It’s no small effort to make a tequila-and-egg-white drink genuinely palatable, but this is the real deal – it’s sippable and refreshing, with notes of citrus and agave.

The original recipe, as published in The PDT Cocktail Book, comes off a bit too sweet for our liking. We’ve reduced the simple syrup a bit, but if you have a sweet tooth you can try it at the original amount of ¾ oz (or 45 mL).

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, and then add ice and shake again. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
