The Teresa is an instant classic from mixologist Rafael Ballesteros, printed in The Joy of Mixology. Rich cassis is a powerful tool for smoothing the sharp edges of Campari, one of the more formidable varieties of bitter citrus apéritif. The lime juice ties the two flavors together for a drink that is perfectly balanced, the center of a bitter-sour-sweet triumvarate.
- 2 parts Bitter orange apéritif
- ¾ part Crème de cassis
- 1 part Lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupé glass.
