Taxco

Taxco cocktail with blanco tequila, lime juice, agave nectar, orange bitters, egg white, and sparkling water

The Taxco is a lovely Gin Fizz riff that substitutes tequila for gin and agave for simple syrup. It hails from Boston’s Green Street bar, a local institution.

It’s a beautifully bright, lush drink. The tequila flavor comes through nicely, supported by the tart lime notes and the bouquet of orange blossom.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients (except sparkling water) first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a tall glass (no ice). Top with sparkling water, and serve with a straw. No garnish is required, but an orange twist or slice wouldn’t be out of place.

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!
