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).
