Taxco

Taxco

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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
