Taxco | Cocktail Party

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
