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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
